image of Gender Policy Delivery in Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan has made important gains in gender equality over the past decade, but gaps still remain. This OECD Review of Gender Policy Delivery in Kazakhstan comes at a moment when Kazakhstan is developing a new Gender Equality and Family Policy up to 2030 which seeks to enable equality of rights, benefits, responsibilities, and opportunities for men and women in all areas of social life, and eliminate all forms of gender discrimination. This review examines the institutional, policy-making and accountability frameworks for advancing and sustaining gender equality and mainstreaming initiatives. It provides actionable policy recommendations based on international good practice and the highest standards of performance, with a view to supporting Kazakhstan’s new policy.

Executive summary

Over the past two decades, the Republic of Kazakhstan has made a range of international commitments, enacted numerous laws, and developed policies that have been instrumental to the improvement of women's participation in public life. Building on its international commitments – such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the Millennium Development Goals and the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals – Kazakhstan developed its 2006-16 Strategy for Gender Equality.
