Where is feminist state theory today? This book offers novel insights into social science debates by analyzing feminist theories of the state. The themes are developed within a comparative perspective. Focusing on devolution in Scotland and the European Union, the book further explores how feminist state theories conceive multi-level governance.
JOHANNA KANTOLA is a Research Fellow in the Political Science Department, University of Helsinki, Finland.
