Gender Regimes and Policies: A Policy Regime Approach
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Political Science.
2015 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

As a preface to the discussion of gender regimes and gender policy regimes, this paper briefly examines the renaissance of the regime concept in political analysis, devoting attention to the development of policy regimes. It then distinguishes between gender regimes and gender policy regimes and presents a gender policy regime typology consisting of three types. To explore the potential of the gender policy regime framework, the paper applies the framework to US policies. It analyzes the social entitlements of women and men with special focus on immigrants. The final section sums up the strengths and limitations of the gender policy regime concept when applied in empirical analysis.
