Contents A theory of boundary politics and alternative explanations -- Globalization and global governance of AIDS : the Geneva Consensus -- Race boundaries and AIDS policy in Brazil and South Africa -- A model-testing case study of strong ethnic boundaries and AIDS policy in India -- Ethnic boundaries and AIDS policies around the world -- Conclusion : ethnic boundaries or cosmopolitanism?
Summary Why have governments responded to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in such different ways? During the past quarter century, international agencies and donors have disseminated vast resources and a set of best practice recommendations to policymakers around the globe. Yet the governments of developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean continue to implement widely varying policies. Boundaries of Contagion is the first systematic, comparative analysis of the politics of HIV/AIDS. The book explores the political challenges of responding to a stigmatized condition, and identifies ethnic boundaries--the formal and informal institutions that divide societies--as a central influence on politics and policymaking. --From publisher's description.
