The Gender team of the OECD Development Centre produced SIGI Country Profiles for all 11 countries of Southeast Asia.

SIGI Country Profiles provide an overview of the state of gender equality in each Southeast Asian country, highlighting key challenges and positive developments, and discussing in detail the level of gender-based discrimination in social institutions across all areas covered by the SIGI. The chapter only presents the overview of the state of gender equality for each Southeast Asian country.

SIGI Country Profiles for Southeast Asia were drafted between September and November 2023, using data on legal systems and frameworks collected through the SIGI 2023 Legal Survey, and data on social norms and practices from the Gender, Institutions and Development Database 2023. Although the cut-off date for data collection on laws was 31 August 2022, important legal reforms that occurred in Southeast Asia past this date are included in the analysis of the country profiles but are not taken into account to calculate countries’ SIGI scores.

The production of the SIGI Country Profiles for Southeast Asia received the support of the Korean delegation to the OECD.
