Final Report - GB_MANAGEMENT (Gender Budgeting as an instrument for managing scientific organisations to promote equal opportunities for women and men - with the example of universities)

Project ID: 36646
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

The main objective of the proposed project was to contribute to the promotion of gender equality in science in the European Union by developing gender budgeting instruments in science. The main focus of gender budgeting is the transfer of gender mainstreaming to budget policy and to the process of controlling budgets. The term gender budgeting is therefore in use for discussing the effects of public budgets with respect to equal opportunities for women and men (gender impact analysis) and is also in use with respect to a gender sensitive budgeting process. Even so the basic ideas are widely known, operational instruments are hardly developed yet.

The analysis revealed in the final report highlighted the stakeholders of budgeting and the cooperation between them and the universities' gender equality representatives or commissioners. The goal was to get an insight into the process itself and into the aspects (structural, legal, cultural or personal) that influence the budgeting process, which will serve as a basis for the development of process indicators and measures to include gender aspects into the budgeting process.
