A Policy@Manchester Event
Governments have packed policy agendas and it is rare that new demands - including measures to promote gender equality – grab the attention of decision makers. Nevertheless there is evidence that over time a range of gender equality issues have managed to find their way onto government agendas across Western European states.
This roundtable combines some recent prize-winning research by Claire Annesley and Francesca Gains on when gender equality demands get government attention with the experience and expertise of two policy insiders: Kate Green MP for Stretford and Urmston and shadow equalities minister and Patrick Diamond, a special advisor under New Labour.
The format of this session will be a brief research presentation followed by a roundtable discussion with invited questions from the floor.
