The politics of measuring gender equality in education: Perspectives for the G7

May 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+1

Thursday May 27th, 2-3.15 pm BST (UTC+1)

Registration and more details below:

Girls’ education is a key focus for the G7 hosted this year by the UK. The Accountability for Gender Equality in Education (AGEE) project supports thinking globally, nationally and locally about how to monitor and evaluate efforts to expand girls’ access to schooling and improve gender equality in education, considering links to wider social policy issues, and the connection with the SDG agenda. This event will explore the politics of steering between the complex relationships described by social research on gender and girls’ education and the clarity on data needed for public policy.

The AGEE framework provides a clear approach for researchers, policy makers and practitioners and includes a new framework of indicators, which also enables us to assess the specific disruptive effects of COVID and climate change on girls’ education and gender equality in education. The event will be an opportunity to share information and responses reflecting on these two processes.

This meeting will:

  • launch and explain the AGEE website and framework,
  • reflect on the application of the AGEE framework for indicators with a community of practice of policy-makers, activists, development agencies, students and academics

This is a virtual event that you can access online via Slido. The recording will be made available on this page following the event.

  • Nicole Bella, Senior Education Specialist, UNESCO
  • Elaine Unterhalter, Professor of Education and International Development, IOE
