Gender Equality Policy: Shared Power—Shared Responsibility
Aims and objectives
Gender mainstreaming has been the strategy of choice for theSwedish Government and Riksdag since 1994. It was first set out in the billThis year the Government also decided to issue an additional instruction to Statistics Sweden (the central statistics office). This states that all official statistics in Sweden shall be disaggregated by sex unless there are special reasons for not doing so.
Results and impact
The steering of the Gender Equality politics has been studied/evaluated in the 2000 year investigation made by the Swedish National Audit Office. One conclusion was that the goals set out in the appropriation directions from the Government were not clearly linked to the gender equality objectives and that there was often a lack of requirements on how to apply gender mainstreaming.
