This is an annotated bibliography that has been put together by the IDS Sexuality and Development Programme.
The IDS Sexuality and Development Programme is a reaction to the inadequate manner in which sexuality is approached by the development sector. Sexuality is not taken seriously: it is considered a frivolous, trivial issue that doesn’t relate to the more important aspects of development such as poverty. This is something that needs to change.
This eclectic bibliography reflects global thinking on sexuality, bringing together texts on poverty, pleasure, gender, heteronormativity, rights, and a lot more! The ideas it contains will inspire you to think differently about sexuality and development whether you are an activist, academic, practitioner, policymaker, or something else entirely.
