When and Why do States Respond to Women's Claims? Understanding Gender-Egalitarian Policy Change in Asia (Project Brief)


When and Why do States Respond to Women's Claims? Understanding Gender-Egalitarian Policy Change in Asia (Project Brief)
Despite progress towards gender equality in some areas of policy, advances have been limited in others. With a better understanding of why some issues gain policy traction while others are neglected or obstructed, advocates for women’s rights will be better equipped to articulate their demands and strategize for gender-egalitarian change.

The Project Briefs on the case studies on India and Indonesia are also available online.


UNRISD Project Briefs pose questions, flag ideas and contribute knowledge that can improve the quality of development debates, policy and practice. They provide a concise summary of an UNRISD research project, situating it within wider social development debates; outlining its focus, objectives and methodology; and highlighting interim findings.
