Budgeting for Women’s Rights: Monitoring Government Budgets for Compliance with CEDAW
Jul 19, 2011
This report discusses the compliance of government budgets with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). It covers expenditure, revenue, macroeconomics of the budget, and budget decision-making processes. The report examines the broad obligations on state parties to CEDAW. The goal is to clarify how gender budget analysis can help monitor compliance with CEDAW and how CEDAW can help set criteria for gender budget equity.
