Accountability for Gender Equality in Education (AGEE) is an innovative project to develop an indicator framework for gender equality in education through critical participatory discussion at local, national, and international levels. The AGEE project is an equal partnership between universities in Malawi, South Africa and the UK, working with selected UN agencies, bilateral donors and a range of civil society organisations. AGEE has been funded by the ESRC and the FCDO.
- Our framework for measuring gender equality in education is designed for use at national and international levels to support local and global commitments to equality, social justice and sustainable development.
- Our framework is both robust and flexible. This means it is responsive to changing local, national and international contexts and issues, and sensitive to pressing contemporary issues including COVID-19 and the climate crisis.
- We have developed our gender equality framework in dialogue with country partners to ensure it captures specific issues on the ground and can support national education departments in policy and practice.
- We are building a global community of practice that brings together a wide range of experts on gender equality and education, from civil society, women’s rights movements and academia to governments and multilateral organisations.
