Research as More Than Extraction
Knowledge Production and Gender-Based Violence in African Societies
Edited by Annie Bunting, Allen Kiconco, and Joel Quirk

This book contributes to an increasingly significant interdisciplinary field that focuses on ethics, methods, and the politics of gender-based violence. Its contributors, the majority of whom are based in Africa, offer concrete examples of how to undertake responsible research in African contexts. Their close and careful analyses of gender, violence, and patriarchy provide an important corrective to simplistic and reductionist gender-based studies.
