Governance Events


Project Period:
23 May 2001 - 25 May 2001
Chiba (Japan)

The inaugural Gender Agenda dialogue focused on social, economic, and political implications arising from gender differences. The event drew 65 participants from 20 ASEM member countries, and presentations were made on the following issues:

– Challenges for women and men in a changing environment

– Human dimension in the economy: Engendering the budget

– Human dimension in the economy: Market and trade policies

– Transformational approach to political decision making

Following the presentations, participants broke up into three working groups to discuss and debate the above issues. As the participants came from diverse backgrounds — ranging from academia to the business, political, media, and non-governmental sectors — they contributed a wide range of opinions that made for lively discussions.
