Gender and Governance Supporting Resources Collection
This Supporting Resources Collection showcases existing work on gender and governance. It provides summaries of a mix of conceptual and research papers, policy briefings, advocacy documents, case study material, and practical tools from diverse regions and disciplines. Focusing on different aspects of governance, the resources are organised into those dealing with: gender and governance broadly; government; global governance; civil society; and the community and household. They help to address a wide range of questions including: how can we reframe understandings, goals and practices of governance to put gender equality and the realisation of rights at its centre?; how can we analyse governance institutions and processes from a gender perspective to expose gender-blind policy and discriminatory practices?; and how can governments - as central and essential instruments of governance - work with and be influenced by other locations of governance such as household, community, national, or global institutions? Finally, this collection contains a 'networking and contacts section which gives details of the organisations featured in the Cutting Edge Pack. Details of how to obtain copies or download the full texts of all featured resources are provided with each summary.
