Addressing Gender Inequalities through Fiscal Law Design (FLDAGI)

Legal Courses

The Legal Department at IMF recently published Fiscal Law Design Considerations in Addressing Gender Inequalities: COVID 19 and Beyond.  In response to the pandemic crisis, several countries embraced tax and spending policies that affected gender equality.  The note examines the legal issues that emerge when countries design fiscal and tax measures to address gender inequality. Legislation can render these initiatives permanent, and the note helpfully explores key elements of effective legal design.  How to make effective temporary policies endure beyond the fiscal year is a perennial challenge for government officials and policymakers.  This peer-to-peer webinar presents a survey of the issues, a case study, and a round table discussion, in order to provide participants with an understanding of the key concepts relevant to addressing gender inequalities, the legal options available and key considerations when seeking to codify approaches and policies into the formal budget process and tax law. The webinar will also give an overview of the broader work of the IMF's Legal Department on legal impediments to women's economic empowerment.
