Gender and Economic Policy Discussion Forum

Gender and Economic Policy Discussion Forum

Briefing Note 24

The Forum looks at ongoing reform initiatives ‘through a gender lens’, drawing attention to gender differentiated behaviour and outcomes that policy formulation needs to take care of. The Forum wants to contribute to strengthening gender sensitivity in Indian public policy and provides a platform for interaction between economists, policy makers, and gender advocates in a structured manner and will make special effort to reach out to students and university faculty.
