ABSTRACT

Korea has introduced the Gender Impact Assessment(GIA) and applied it when it plans and implements rules, schemes and projects in an effort to reduce the gender gap. This study aims to systematically review how a local government operates the GIA prescribed in autonomous ordinances to identify issues and suggest improvement plans. This study looks over outlines and systems of the GIA policies and create tools to systematically assess the policy operation. Jeju Special self-governing Province is chosen as a case region for actual analysis. Suggestions are made for improving the GIA based on the analysis results. First, institutional modification is needed for gradual capability growth of the GIA. Second, ordinance bills submitted by provincial council members need to be evaluated by GIA. Third, policies are urgently needed to make an assessment item of equal participation of women and men practical. Fourth, practical plans should be devised to consolidate roles and functions of the GIA committee. Fifth, systems and contents of GIA need to be overhauled in line with amendment of the Local Finance Act.
