Forum of Federations
Special Forum of Federations 3-Part Webinar Series on #Federalism and #India   

Part 2:  𝐔𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐅𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐦 𝐢𝐧 𝐈𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐚 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐚 𝐆𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞

Forum research shows that federal systems can provide advantages and disadvantages for gender equality. Drawing on the research findings of the 𝘎𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘌𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘍𝘦𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘮 project, this webinar will focus on the opportunities that federal systems offer for advancing gender equality, specifically those related to women’s political participation and representation, economic empowerment, and service delivery. Thus far, the decisive impact of federalism on gender equality in the Indian setting is missing. Different aspects such as intergovernmental relations, asymmetrical relations, and the multilevel federal structure, have impacted women’s roles in the state machinery. For example, in India, the reservation of 33% of seats for women at the local panchayat election has increased women’s active engagement in political decision-making. However, the lack of discussion around women’s roles in the federal system has limited the development of federalism as a concept in India. Federalism in its gendered discourse can help expand the scope of policy, innovation, and experimentation to increase gender equality.

Date: November 9, 2021
Time: 9:30 AM EST / 7:00 PM IST

Speakers: Rekha Saxena & Diana Chebenova
