Summary In this collection Naila Kabeer examines the meaning of gender relations in the contexts of development practice, and of development institutions: a theme taken up by Lewis B. Dzimbiri in relation to refugee programmes, and by Yezichalem Kassa and Feleke Tadele in diagnosing the needs of rural communities. Mark Gorman focuses on the needs of elderly people, while Tom and Francesca Scanlon and Maria Luiza Nobre Lamarao describe the challenges of working with street children and adolescents. Shubi L. Ishemo argues against approaches to development and relief that are not culturally familiar to the people affected
