  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Andalusia, gender responsive budgeting, gender audits.

In 2003 the Andalusian parliament passed a law obliging the regional government to use public budgets to achieve real equality between women and men. This led to the introduction of the Andalusian Gender Budgeting practice, an experience that is now well established and continuously improved through evaluations of its implementation, continued political commitment and the leadership of the institutions involved. This article discusses the main characteristics and most innovative elements of the gender budgeting experience implemented by the Regional Government of Andalusia. Since the Andalusian experience has been researched on previous occasions, this paper focuses on developments in the practice in recent years, particularly regarding the evaluation of its implementation, formulated through gender budgeting audits. Analysis of the Andalusian case sheds light on the elements which the Regional Government of Andalusia considers essential for the success, maintenance and consolidation of the experience.
