Chapter 10: Gender and regulatory impact assessment
This chapter examines gender impact assessment (GIA) initially developed as one of the key tools in feminist policy analysis and practice, and a strategy to achieve gender mainstreaming in policy process. Issues around the use of GIA include the aims and ways of doing GIA, and the need for GIA bureaucratic capacity and capability. The politicized nature of GIA is illustrated by a case study of the UK government’s equality assessments following a 2010 spending review. In conclusion, it is argued that despite widespread adoption of GIA, this tool is still underutilized and an overtly politicized tool in regulatory policy-making.
