Gender

Most of the health, education and budget related work by CBPS has incorporated gender as a special focus. Reproductive and Maternal Health and Public Expenditure Analysis are some of the studies that examined gender as a focus area. Currently, three major research studies primarily focusing on gender issues are being conducted. New employment opportunities and incidence of violence against women in Information Technology Industry is being explored. Impact of working in the IT industry on care-related responsibilities is also being studied. Another study is trying to understand the barriers to economic empowerment of women inherent in societal systems and solutions to such barriers by looking through the lens of a collective action based programme in the rural areas of India. This research study evaluates the impact of Mahila Samakhya programme on women’s economic empowerment in Bihar and Karnataka. There is also a study which involves looking at the budgeting process of Delhi Police and its implications on key aspects of police response and service delivery with a focus on crimes against women.
