Chapter 23: Gender mainstreaming at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development
Feminist scholars have critically demonstrated the instrumentalisation of gender equality agendas to economic goals within global governance. This chapter builds upon this scholarship by investigating how gender equality has been articulated at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Specifically, it examines the interplay between the EBRD’s mandate to promote transition to market economies and the discursive strategies employed by staff at the EBRD in order to establish an approach to promoting women’s equality. It is argued that the emergence of women as an agent of marketisation and privatisation has begun to play a role in the legitimisation of the bank’s continued and expanding role in neoliberal governance as it moves beyond East and Central Europe.
