About the course

This unique course will equip participants to engage in gender analysis of diverse public policy fields, including understanding concepts and methods to identify and address the differential impact of policy and it’s funding on both men and women. The course will provide participants with an understanding of the differential gender impact of public policy, including expenditures and revenue raising, at different scales, and approaches to conduct a gender analysis drawn from international best practice, recently updated by the OECD and IMF. The course will teach participants to carry out gender analysis and make gender visible in public policy processes and outcomes.

Course overview

This course equips participants to carry out gender analysis of policy instruments including taxes, expenditures, regulatory regions and cash transfers. Budgets and policy is often presented as gender-neutral. However, men and women are situated in different social, economic and family contexts and as a result, policies affect men and women differently. The failure to bring a gender lens to policy development and implementation can lead to sub-optimal outcomes for all and hinder the achievement of social and economic equality for women.

The objective of the course is to build understanding of the differential impact of policy on men and women of diverse backgrounds, drawing on international trends and initiatives in this field that are increasingly widespread. Gender responsive budgeting initiatives are applied in every region in the world including the Asia-Pacific and are adopted by the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

This course draws on international best practice tailored for the Australian context to challenge assumptions of gender neutrality and enable participants to identify differential gender impact of policies, expenditures and taxes. Participants will receive some lecture content and learning will focus on active engagement in tailored case studies and exercises with other participants and the presenters, drawing on real life scenarios. The course provides participants with a tool kit of diverse analytical approaches that can be applied to various data sources and policy fields and explores practical approaches to policy and budget processes for Australia and other countries.
