The Accountability for Gender Equality in Education (AGEE) project supports thinking globally, nationally and locally about how to monitor and evaluate efforts to expand girls’ access to schooling and improve gender equality in education, considering links to wider social policy issues, and the connection with the SDG agenda. In advance of the G7 hosted this year in the UK, this AGEE event explored the politics of steering between the complex relationships described by social research on gender inequalities and girls’ education and the clarity on data needed for public policy.
This event launched the AGEE Framework, with speakers describing the rationale for the Framework, its key elements and uses for policy-makers, activists, development agencies, students and academics.
Speakers for the event were:
- Esme Kadzamira, Research Fellow, University of Malawi (Chair)
- Elaine Unterhalter, Professor of Education and International Development, University College London Institute of Education
- Nicole Bella, Senior Education Specialist, UNESCO
- Yanchun Zhang, Chief of Statistics, Human Development Report Office, UNDP
- Sharon Tao, Director of Education, Girls’ Education Challenge
