AGEE at the HDCA Global Dialogue 2021

The AGEE project proposes a new measurement framework for gender equality in education, based on insights from the capability approach. By drawing on this body of work, the project aims to provide a clear approach for researchers, policy makers and practitioners through the development of a new framework of indicators, thereby also improving accountability processes; and also seeks to assess the specific disruptive effects of COVID and climate change on girls’ education and gender equality in education. 

This event, which took place as part of the Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA) Global Dialogue 2021, began with an overview of the project. The event also offered critical reflections from key scholars working in the field of capabilities, gender and education on the framework, and was also an opportunity for suggestions and feedback from the wider capabilities community.
