Abstract: A major objective of this publication is to document the experiences of practitioners and experts with respect to gender training and studies in gender and development in the South in particular. It is particularly concerned with the following questions: (1) how are the epistemological roots of gender and development related with the knowledge and learning contexts in which gender training takes place? (2) what are the implications of building feminist knowledge and approaches, which ultimately challenge traditional models of power and knowledge, in contexts that value acquisition of knowledge over processes of learning and that subscribe to hierarchical, positivist and didactic knowledge and learning models? and (3) what are the assumptions of the links between knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and practice in gender studies and training and how do these mesh with the learning and knowledge contexts of the societies and organizations where such education and trainings occur?
