Chapter Chapter 3 in Financing for Gender Equality, 2017, pp 25-48 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The chapter discusses the obligations of governments to finance the realization of women’s rights and the guidance this provides for gender-responsive budgeting. It considers the gender-equitable distribution of public expenditure between women and men, girls and boys, as well as the adequacy of expenditure allocations in relation to what is required for realization of rights. It further considers human rights obligations for the mobilization of finance and for managing government budgets so as to avoid deterioration in the enjoyment of rights, especially in the context of economic crises. Finally, the chapter discusses the opportunities the human rights system provides for pressing governments to meet their obligations to finance the realization of women’s rights.
