Nuffic publishes report on gender mainstreaming
24 March 2012: Nuffic (the Netherlands Organisation for International Cooperation in Higher Education) has published a report on gender mainstreaming in the development cooperation higher education capacity building programmes of the Netherlands. In this book the Nuffic looks back on the lessons it has learnt with regard to mainstreaming gender in 3 key programmes of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NFP [scholarships], NPT [projects] and NICHE [projects]). The report discusses: what the gender equality objectives and requirements are for the three programmes; how Nuffic has interpreted these and translated them in the programmes; the challenges that Nuffic has experienced in mainstreaming gender in the three programmes; how Nuffic has dealt with these challenges; and where there is room for improvement.
For each of these programmes, an analysis is made from the perspective of the most important stakeholders in the programmes (Nuffic as programme manager; the Ministry as programme owner; Northern and Southern project implementers; and in the case of NFP, the fellows).
