Chapter Summary

This chapter concentrates on how international concepts of gender are negotiated in social spaces constituted through local and translocal networking by women in the field of development, thereby shaping translocal flows and landscapes in line with notions first developed by Appadurai and others. The intention is twofold, to contribute to translocal methodologies as well as to a comparative perspective across Muslim societies. The chapter begins with the elaboration of a methodology based on the concept of translocality and the constitution of social spaces which integrates sociology of knowledge, grounded theory, in addition to notions of agency and negotiation of meaning, notably at the interfaces of knowledge systems. It then shows how women's movements build special forms of translocal knowledge and capacity by integrating and translating concepts found in other locations or in global gender debates. Finally, the importance of global networks between women activists will be acknowledged.
