“Non-profit organisations are confronted with the heterogeneous, often contradictory interests, needs, expectations of success and goals of their diverse stakeholders”, according to Anna Oppelmayer, who recently completed her doctoral thesis at the Department of Public, Non-profit and Health Management.

What does it take to make the public budget gender-responsive? A new project on gender budgeting funded by the Anniversary Fund of the OeNB aims to explore this.
The budget of a public administration (i. e. federal government, federal state government, local government) shows how it is financed, what tasks it fulfils and what financial resources are necessary to realise them. The decisions regarding the generation and use of public money have different effects on different population groups, such as women and men. Gender budgeting attempts to show these effects and to take them into account in budget decisions. Since 2009, the federal constitution requires all governmental levels (central, states ‘Laender’, and local) to pursue equality of women and men in their budgeting systems. This gained attention worldwide, but what have the ‘Laender’ and local governments been doing since then to achieve this goal? And what effects do the various interventions have?
