Session: Investing in the Social Infrastructure – Women’s Budget Group Research and Advocacy
June 24, 2016 11:20 to 13:00
AM109
 
The UK Women’s Budget Group has actively interrogated the fiscal and monetary policy of the UK government for over 20 years. Recently we have developed a feminist economic strategy for recovery and renewal which we have termed Plan F – in response to the commitment of the government not to deviate from their neo-liberal austerity Plan B. This roundtable will discuss this strategy in the light of recent research which has modelled the implications of state investment in childcare and adult social care in the OECD (see ITUC report), and a study on Turkey which compares the impact of investment in male and female intensive sectors (construction vs social care). The roundtable will reflect on the results of these studies, the methodology of this research as well as the political strategies necessary to influence macro economic policy at a national and international level.

Session: Making the Case for Gender Equality: Revisiting the Equity and Efficiency Arguments
June 24, 2016 11:20 to 13:00
AM108
 
In the last decade arguments for promoting gender equality increasingly have taken on board efficiency arguments to bolster the case of equity. Through analyses that have grown in sophistication these arguments have demonstrated the benefits to the economy and societal well-being of reducing gender inequality and the costs of not doing so. On this roundtable six panelists with differing experiences and policy/scholarly backgrounds will discuss their perspectives on the arguments used to make the case for gender equality and the value and perils of making efficiency arguments.

June 24, 2016 14:30 to 16:10

This panel will discuss the implications of gender inequality and the challenge it poses for transformative change, drawing on themes from a three volume compendium entitled Gender Challenges by Bina Agarwal, published by Oxford University Press, 2016. The compendium covers a selection of Agarwal’s essays on agriculture, property rights, and the environment written over three decades, but which continue to be central to current debates. Combining several disciplines, methodologies and cross-country comparisons, the essays challenge standard economic analysis and assumptions from a gender perspective, and present innovative alternatives.

Session: Roundtable: What Feminist Economists Can and Should Do to Improve the Lives of LGBTI People
June 25, 2016 9:00 to 10:40
AM112
 
ROUNDTABLE: What Feminist Economists Can and Should Do to Improve the Lives of LGBTI People As global visibility of LGBTI people has increased, the extent of LGBTI exclusion from full participation in key social, economic, and cultural spaces has become clearer, partly because of new research. But that body of research is thin in many parts of the world, and much work needs to be done to make it professionally rigorous, useful, and comparable across countries. This roundtable will bring together economists whose work has connected with LGBTI issues in some way to discuss what feminist economists could do to promote LGBTI inclusion, including research, teaching, mentoring, and advocacy for data. In other words, how can we use our academic and teaching roles, our government roles, our research, and our students to expand research on LGBTI people? The roundtable will include discussion of the following specific questions: What are feminist economists doing now that relates to LGBTI inclusion (research, teaching, advocacy, etc.)? How can feminist economists contribute to LGBTI civil society and other efforts to expand the knowledge base, such as UNDP's proposed LGBTI Inclusion Index? What knowledge that you've gained from research and activism on related issues could be used in the sexual orientation and gender identity realm?

Deeply rooted inequalities in the current pattern of economic growth can’t be overcome without recognizing and redistributing the unpaid care and domestic work. The unpaid care and domestic work refers to the broad range of activities necessary for every day reproduction of human life, the environment and the economic system. It includes, for example, collecting water and fuel for domestic consumption, cooking, cleaning the house, keeping safe living environments, and also the direct work of caring for people: children, elderly, persons with disabilities, and adults of all ages. Without this daily work, life could not be sustained and reproduced. Nor would the labour force be available to work and to produce goods and services, essential for development. Not only does the unpaid care and domestic work sustain the labor force, but it also absorbs the ‘invisible’ costs of poor infrastructure and insufficient public care services provision. These costs are further exacerbated by effects of climate change, ecological damage and extreme weather conditions.

Finally, after years of perfecting concepts, developing normative frameworks and feminist activism, “care work” made it into the recently adopted development Agenda-2013. Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals refers explicitly to “unpaid care and domestic work” in terms of recognition and valuation – the Beijing wording – and describes how recognition should take place: i.e., “through the provision of public services, infrastructure and social protection policies” (SDG 5.4). This has the potential of moving care policies up in political agendas. Yet, for care policies to be effective and transformative, they have to contribute to the realization of gender-equality, women’s rights and well-being.

Against this background, the international commitment for recognizing unpaid care and domestic work within Agenda 2030 creates the need for a better understanding on how to design and implement effective and transformative care policies at the national level.

Therefore the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung commissioned a study on new concepts, actors and policies with regards to care. The study was commissioned to UNRISD under the lead of Valeria Esquivel and aims at analyzing the interlinkages between new conceptualizations of care, new actors in the field of care, and the implementation of new care policies. Based on a review of selected care policies, and recent research results produced by UNRISD and others on processes of claiming for care provision, including at the global level, this study will explore how care policies are framed and implemented and what supports or hampers their implementation.

In the context of the 25th Annual Conference of IAFFE, we are happy to present a draft version of the study and to discuss our findings with feminists experts present at the IAFFE Conference.

Session: Change your thoughts – transform your life: What is a Gender Transformative Approach to development and how can it change our thinking on multi-dimensional poverty reduction in agriculture and natural resource management projects?
June 25, 2016 11:00 to 12:40
AM110
 
Abstract: A Gender Transformative Approach (GTA) to development aims to move beyond access and control over resources to address the fundamental issues leading to women’s disempowerment – the structures, norms and beliefs that reinforce women’s multi-dimensional poverty. But what exactly is GTA and how is it different than other feminist approaches to poverty reduction? Is this another fashionable trend in gender and development or is their real potential to create a paradigm shift? This roundtable discussion will focus on GTA theory, research, and practice to understand and explore the potential of this approach including: how it is distinguished from other approaches, examples of GTA in practice, issues in monitoring and evaluation, the drivers behind this approach, and more. This roundtable will include open discussion with the audience to encourage both breadth and depth in the conversation.​

Session: Roundtable: Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – are they a transformative agenda?
June 25, 2016 14:00 to 15:40
AM104
 
Adopted after 3 years of intense negotiations amongst governments and lobbying by civil society, agenda 2030 promises a plan of action for sustainable development that is ‘transformative’, sustainable and leaving no one behind. In its preamble, world leaders commit to ‘take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.’ Global goals are set by a world body without commitment of resources or organization for implementation. In that sense, they can be considered worth only the paper they are written on. Yet as the research project Power of Numbers found, global goal setting can have powerful consequences on both ideas and policy, some of which are unintended. The MDGs were highly unsatisfactory, and reversed the progress made in Beijing replacing it with a simplified agenda. The use of quantitative targets has facilitated redefinition of concepts such as gender equality and facilitated target driven strategies. This roundtable will discuss the prospects for progress in gender equality, women’s empowerment and human rights under the 2030 agenda. It will discuss questions such as: what is the meaning of ‘transformative change’? Does the set of 17 goals, 169 targets and associated indicators adequately address key priorities? What are the key gaps? Are they an improvement on the MDGs framework? Will the use of quantitative targets inevitably lead to a reductionist approach that undermines human rights? This roundtable will bring together scholars who have been engaged in both analysis as well as negotiatig process to discuss these questions.

This roundtable is organized by the Feminist Theory Thematic Group. We plan to address the following questions: - Feminist economic ways of theorizing What are our own ways of thinking about feminist economics? Do we create new methods or are feminist economics mainly based on existing ways of thinking? - Situatedness of theoretical debates/ (geographical) standpoint of theory development Is the theoretical debate in feminist economics universal or is there a specifically European, African, Asian, Latin American, North American theoretical debate on feminist economics? Are there regional differences or specific regional theoretical questions in feminist economics? E.g. with respect to the role of the state, (eco-)social market economy and other conceptions of regulatory policy? - Feminist economics and gender theory How do we integrate the concepts of gender studies, e.g. doing and undoing gender, intersectionality, queer theory into feminist economic approaches? - Ethical foundations of feminist economics Have all theoretical approaches an ethical basis? On which kind of ethics are theoretical approaches to feminist economics based? How do the often implicit ethics of neoclassical, institutional, or Marxian approaches to feminist economics differ? - Theory development by field What does a feminist theory in your subfield look like? What does a feminist theory of care economy and care regimes look like? For example, A feminist theory of sustainability? A feminist theory of international economics? A feminist theory of the market and its state and supranational regulation? A feminist theory of business? A feminist theory of non-profit organisations? A feminist theory of the (global) households? A feminist theory of poverty?

Session: High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment
June 25, 2016 16:00 to 17:40
AC202
 
High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment Roundtable at IAFFE 2016

The first ever High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment brings together influential leaders from government, business, academia, and civil society, appointed by the UN Secretary-General and charged with effecting positive change for women and girls. The panel was launched at Davos in January and had its inaugural meeting in March at CSW. The panel will meet again in July before publishing a report following a third meeting in September. A final meeting and report will be published early in 2017. The report will draw up specific, measurable, actionable, realistic and time bound recommendations for key actions that can be taken by governments, citizens, business and international institutions and that can help to build momentum and action on the wider 2030 agenda.

We are seeking the views of experts in the field in order for the panel to achieve a well evidenced, innovative report that is well received by key influencers and has transformational and lasting impact on both policy and practice. This roundtable will be an opportunity for researchers and officials working on the High Level Panel for Women’s Economic Empowerment to engage with experts about the panel process and contents. This will be part of a series of international events informing the work of the panel with the latest evidence. The aim of the session is for members of the panel and secretariat to hear the views and evidence of international experts. This will help to shape and test emerging ideas and direction ahead of the second meeting of the High Level Panel in July 2016.

The session will feature a presentation from a senior researcher working with the lead author of the panel’s report, Dr. Tanni Mukhopadhyay. This will set out the emerging narrative and ideas of the panel’s lead author and her team. Professor Joyce Jacobsen will act as discussant and provide a response to the presentation to set up a discussion chaired by Professor Naila Kabeer. Also on the panel will be Professor Alicia Giron, a member of the High level Panel.

More information on the panel is available here: https://www.empowerwomen.org/en/who-we-are/initiatives/sg-high-level-panel-on-womens-economic-empowerment

Session: Macroeconomics and Gender Justice: Strategies for Change through the SDGs and Beyond
June 26, 2016 9:00 to 10:40
AM107
 
The pursuit of macroeconomic gender justice unites key emerging themes for global feminist and progressive movements alike. Feminist economists have been the forerunners of highlighting gender inequality within the current macroeconomic model – namely, its fundamental dependence on mechanisms like unpaid care work, the absence of supportive social programmes, regressive taxation models and the segregation of women into low-paid forms of work. In light of this critique and new tools like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this roundtable will bring together leading economists and activists to consider strategies for feminist policy and advocacy. As such, the event will provide space to a critically assess the opportunities presented by the SDGs and other debate practical approaches to policy that are informed by feminist economic principles.

In addition to the scholars and activists listed, the secretariat of the newly formed UN High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment has been invited to participate in the discussion, either via teleconference or in person.

Session: Transition in Europe and EIGE work
June 26, 2016 9:00 to 10:40
AM107
 
The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), a decentralised agency of the European Union, aims to become Europe’s knowledge center and the front – runner in developing evidence, collecting knowledge and sharing useful experiences promoting gender equality. It is a relatively new institution, which celebrated its 5th anniversary last year. How relevant is its work for feminist economists and what they could bring into EIGE’s work? The main purpose of the Round Table is to present EIGE’s work, discuss its relevance for academic research and exchange views on possible areas of collaboration with IAFFE members to benefit from their research, experience and perspectives focused on gender budgeting.

• EIGE’s work and its engagement with academic research
• Public investments in care: how could they stimulate growth and employment
• Gender Budgets: where we are and new challenges
• Engendering the budgets of the European Union and its Member States: from theory to practice
• Gender budgeting as a condition for sustainable and inclusive growth in the European Union: entry points for action
• Gender budgeting in the European Union: harmonisation challenges
