About the book

This report discusses the broad implications of the obligation on State Parties to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and other international human rights treaties to ensure that there is no de facto or de jure discrimination in government policies, including budget policies. The report aims to clarify how gender budget analysis can help in monitoring compliance with CEDAW and how CEDAW can help set criteria for what constitutes gender equality in budgetary matters.
