Quality in Gender+ Equality Policies: State of the Art and Mapping of Competences Report: Hungary

Publication Type: 
Place of Publication: 
This State of the Art Report on Hungary spans the period from World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995 until the present. The aim of the report is to explore the most relevant literature on gender equality policies in Hungary in general, and on the three gender equality-related policy issues chosen by QUING in particular. As well, the report introduces a wide range of scholars who have written on related topics during the time period. Given the limitations in scope, time, and capacity, this report is not meant to provide an exhaustive list of all relevant sources or authors working on them. The primary criteria for selection were: comprehensiveness, and the relevance of arguments. In case of multiple writings by the same author on one issue, the most recent, comprehensive, and innovative articles were chosen by the author of this report. Therefore, this bibliography is, to a certain extent, selective and subjective. As such, it does not give an unequivocal representation of most important contributions to the field in Hungary. Though this collection focuses mainly on academic publications produced by Hungarian or non- Hungarian scholars either in Hungarian or in English, it also contains some reports or critical evaluations written by representatives of Hungarian NGOs. These materials were chosen because: they were considered to be of particular importance due to their analytical nature, because they highlight certain issues related to gender equality policy otherwise absent from academic papers, or because of their distinctively critical analytical approach to a topic. Comparative studies were found mainly in English.
