Inputs to the Commission

As part of our evidence gathering, we have commissioned a number of papers to be written relating to our four work strands; Work (paid and unpaid), Public Services, Social Security and Taxation, and an Enabling Environment. These include both overview papers aimed at outlining the current policy landscape and issues in a particular area, to shorter policy papers looking at specific policy interventions that the Commission way wish to consider.

These papers have been commissioned by the Women’s Budget Group to inform the Commission on a Gender-Equal Economy. As inputs to the Commission, they have been written by independent authors and should not be taken to represent the views of the Commission on a Gender-Equal Economy or the Women’s Budget Group.

This page will be updated as and when papers are completed. You can view these papers below.
