Favourable conditions for the adoption and implementation of gender budgeting: insights from comparative analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Gender Budget Analysis, discussed here as gender budgeting, is concerned with transforming public policy and resource allocation processes in order to advance women's equality. Gender budgeting can therefore be characterized as transformative feminist policy change. This paper presents a Framework of Favourable Conditions that influence the adoption and implementation of gender budgeting in different country and governmental contexts. It is based on empirical research into three experiences of introducing gender budgeting at sub-national government level within European Union member states from 2000-2009 and insights from the literature.
