Frame of Image  n d e r budgeting in Korea, based on the experiences of research projects for the past two years. It has to be admitted that two years are a very short period of time to analyze. It is hoped that the remaining challenges will turn into achievements, as gender budgeting - when it is put into practice - becomes more mature. Key words : gender budgeting, institutionalizing gender budgeting, analysis tools and i n s t r u m e n t s , expertise vs. democracy, misunderstandings of gender budgeting
1. Introduction
The first step in gender budgeting was made in Korea when the National Finance Act enacted i n 2006 required the submission of gender b u d g e t statements. This paper reviews the a c h i e v e m e n t s and challenges of gender budgeting in Korea, based on the experiences of research projects to seek detailed action s t r a t e g i e s for gender budgeting after the legislation of the Act. The Act requires gender
budget statements to be included in the budget bill starting from the fiscal year 2010, whose guidelines will be announced in March 2009 and the government's budget request will be completed in September 2009. This makes the y e a r 2009 as the starting year of gender budgeting institutionalization in Korea. Then, the available period for preparation is less than two years between 2007 and 2008. Although the two years that this paper tries to analyze are too short, this research has been intensively c o n d u c t e d as any other projects with set deadline do.

Abstract

Gender budgeting took its first step in Korea as
the National Finance Act enacted in 2006. This
Act requires gender budgeting statements to be
included from the FY 2010 budget bill. Gender
budgeting refers to all methods, procedures
and instruments that are needed to achieve
gender equality in the budget process. This
paper includes achievements and challenges of
gender budgeting in Korea, based on the
experiences of research projects for the past
two years. It has to be admitted that two years
are a very short period of time to analyze. It is
hoped that the remaining challenges will turn
into achievements, as gender budgeting - when
it is put into practice - becomes more mature.
