Abstract

International community has been allocating increasing amount of development assistance to developing countries in order to alleviate poverty and promote sustainable development. One of the essential goals of aid is to empower women and bring about gender equality in order to assure that women benefit equally from development process as men. In this context, the main objective of this paper is to examine the international aid architecture on gender and development by looking at it from donor's perspective. Stemming from theoretical arguments on gender and development such as Women In Development (WID) and Gender and Development (GAD), this paper will then proceed to examine policies and structures of donors on gender in development. In particular, South Korea will be specifically examined to see where it stands. South Korea was chosen as the case study owing to its importance as the newest emerging donor with dynamic history of women's empowerment of its own.
