Analysing the Political Economy of Gender and Open Government: Why It Matters and How to Do It

12:00 - 13:20
Room 201, Shaw Centre

This workshop will stimulate discussion and reflection on why gender matters to the quality of reforms to government openness and accountability. Participants will use real country case studies to explore how gender and other power inequalities shape the types of open government issues that are prioritised and who participates in and benefits from reform. Participants will also learn about practical approaches they can use to support the participation of marginalised women in open government processes. The workshop aims to increase participants’ curiosity about the intersection of gender and open government and their interest in using practical tools to achieve more gender-aware and politically smart open government processes. The workshop will also provide an opportunity to test and gain feedback on parts of the gender and political economy analysis toolkit being developed for OGP as part of the Feminist Open Government Initiative.
