Gender mainstreaming
Conceptual links to institutional machineries
in Mainstreaming gender, democratizing the state?

This chapter reviews and acknowledges the emergence, development and increasing sophistication of the body of knowledge and action associated with integrating women and then consolidating the attention to gender in institutional core missions and strategies. Gender mainstreaming begins a process of understanding the baseline of institutional capabilities, measurements and actions with respect to consequences of inequality in different degrees. In most institutions, the dialogue, as well as the institutional machinery to operationalize people- and gender-sensitive outcomes, will require new staff with gender expertise and experience to replace those who leave under attrition and retirement. The chapter addresses the historical development of women and gender in integrating and mainstreaming terms. Considerable accomplishments have occurred in expanding public policy agendas and establishing connections to mainstream policy.
