Concept Note - When and Why Do States Respond to Women's Claims?

  • Project from: 2013 to 2015

This UNRISD research project aims to contribute insights into the complex processes through which advocates for women’s rights articulate their demands, and strategize with other actors both within and outside the state realm, and transnationally, to bring about policy change; the “blind spots”— issues on which there has been little advocacy, or where advocacy does not enter policy debates, despite their centrality to women’s lives and well-being; and the proactive role of other actors, nationally and transnationally, in triggering policy change.

The concept note describes the project's background and context, as well as research questions, framework for analysis and methodology.
