Gender Mainstreaming was clearly established as the global strategy for promoting gender equality through the Platform for Action at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in September 1995.
The need to ensure that attention to gender perspectives is an integral part of interventions in all areas of societal development - policy development, research, advocacy/ dialogue, legislation, resource allocation, and planning, implementation and monitoring of program and projects - was made clear in that document. The obligation to act upon and enact gender mainstreaming mandates extended beyond national governments to the international institutions and multilateral frameworks and regimes that form the system of global governance.
Thus, a decade after Beijing, it is befitting to take a closer look at some international institutions and regimes, and analyze and evaluate their efforts in and their commitment to gender mainstreaming. Brilliant success or much ado about nothing? What are concrete achievements and results, what are shortcomings and failures? What way forward for promoting gender awareness and equality in global governance? A panel of speakers will try to answer these and related questions.
Speakers and Subjects:
- Ilse Lenz: The Gender Mainstreaming Mandate in Global Governance -- A Look Back to the Future
- Elaine Zuckerman: Reforming the World Bank: Will the Gender Strategy Make a Difference?
