This paper reviews gender budgeting concepts and approaches in some EU and non-EU countries. It provides a definition of gender budgeting within the larger context of equality budgeting, based on the relevant literature. It then zooms into the various tools used for gender budgeting and delves into the various institutional set-ups of a selection of countries, and provides specific examples from Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany and Italy, among others. Overall, the practices show insightful approaches and ways for making public finances and particularly budgets more gender-equality friendly.
