Most of the document presents a general model for the assessment of gendered inequalities, and there is a focus on a set of operational processes and guiding questions. The guiding questions target different parts of the organisation and point to possible directions for the work.

The guidelines are based on the Secretariat’s experiences from the related project Gender Mainstreaming in Government Agencies (GMGA), as well as the latest research on and evaluation of gender mainstreaming in public administration.
