GAD Code Guidelines

This handbook provides the necessary information on how the stakeholders, particularly the LGUs, will develop and pass a GAD Code based on the gender issues and concerns in their respective localities based on consultation with their women constituents and the women's empowerment and gender equality agenda of the government. The GAD Code shall also serve as basis for identifying programs, activities, and projects on GAD. The book includes the Philippine Commission on Women's Memorandum Circular No. 2009-1 (Guidelines on the Formulation, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation of a Gender and Development Code).

Research in Gender Equality

The Action Plan recognized that women’s perspectives had a special priority. At the time, it was more or less evident that researchers engaged in women’s studies were female and that women could bring new perspectives to research. Today the situation is different. Gender researchers, the research councils and politicians all face new challenges as a consequence of the changes that have taken place since the 1980s in relation to both gender and equality issues, as well as in university policies.
Gender research is often taken for granted by university authorities, research councils and politicians. Yet since the days of the Action Plan Denmark has lagged behind the other Nordic countries and the EU when it comes to serious and dedicated support and initiatives. Existing resources and positions, institutions and journals need to be strengthened and improved, for example, in the form of the consistent and radical gender mainstreaming of research programs, ventures and recruitment, as well as in the creation of a new strategic research program for gender and equality research.
In this publication, Danish gender researchers describe the central and most critical questions in their respective fields. Spread over 28 research themes, the publication is intended as an introduction for students with an interest in the field and as a handbook for journalists, as well as to provide politicians with short introductions to certain themes and to offer researchers an introduction to fields outside of their own specific areas of interest. The publication demonstrates that gender research in the 21st century is still alive and kicking, able to provide relevant, critical and cross disciplinary knowledge and perspectives on social challenges. We hope you enjoy reading it!
The journal welcomes articles from both established researchers and PhD students, as well as occasionally from MA students. Since 2010, the journal has published one English-language issue each year, as its aim is to further the internationalization of Danish gender research. The editorial board of Women, Gender & Research consists of an interdisciplinary group of researchers based at different Danish and Nordic Universities. The aim of Women, Gender & Research is to continue to contribute to raising the quality of Danish gender research.
