Call for Papers: Mainstreaming Gender in Public Administration: Prospects and Challenges
CAPPA Annual Conference
May 16-18, 2017
University of Manitoba
Panel Description: Since the mid-1990s, Canadian governments have been committed to gender-based analysis (GBA), requiring analysts to apply a gender lens to all policies and programs ex ante in order to detect – and remedy – potential disparate impacts that sustain unequal power relations. In 2011, federal-level GBA was reoriented towards GBA+, an intersectional approach to better respond to the realities of diversity. Only a few provinces have followed suit. Despite its potential, GBA in Canada has yet to transform social relations, leaving many to question its effectiveness as a strategy for achieving gender equality. In Canada and beyond, critics point to the tension between the feminist goals of GM and the neutral bureaucracy. This panel explores this tension, investigating the prospects and challenges of gender mainstreaming in Canada.
We invite paper proposals addressing theoretical questions and substantive issues related to the state of GBA practice and scholarship in Canada. Such topics include, but are not limited to:
- Gender-Based Analysis Plus/intersectionality as policy analysis
- GBA+/intersectionality as policy theory
- Implementation of GBA/+
- Feminist knowledges in bureaucratic contexts
- Gender-Based Analysis in the provinces
- Federal and provincial comparisons
- Canada in comparative perspective
- Measuring progress of GBA/+
- Politics and GBA/+
We welcome paper proposals from academics, community groups and practitioners.
Please send proposals to Stephanie Paterson (Stephanie.firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 31, 2017.
