This study aims to develop a standard model for strengthening a local government’s accountability that the local government actively implements and executes Specific Gender Impact Analysis and Assessment(GIAA). As of December 2016 amendment of the GIAA Act provided a legal basis that not only the minister of the MOGEF but also the head of a local government also can implement and control Specific GIAA.


Specific GIAA specifies laws and regulations, government policies, and projects of public agencies that are highly relevant to women’s empowerment and allows professional experts to conduct assessment and analysis in-dept of them. Specific GIAA also expects the result of analysis and assessment to be delivered to target policy agency to apply, so that they can gender-equally improve policies. In this regards, amendment of the GIAA Act in 2016 that enables a head of a local government to implement Specific GIAA brought major significance.


However, there have not been adequate researches on capacity and capability of local governments that facilitates to perform Special GIAA or distinctive features that should be considered when Specific GIAA is conducted by a local government.


In order to meet the goals of this research, research justification and methodologies were applied. This research recognizes characteristic of Specific GIAA and its implication to Special GIAA standard model for a local government, and current capacity of local governments to implement Special GIAA. This research also contains an analysis on pilot projects of Specific GIAA conducted by few local governments between 2012 and 2016. In particular, in-depth analysis of cases of Daegu Metropolitan City, Gyeonggi-do Province and Gyeongsangnam-do Province which are leading local governments for Special GIAA was conducted. Moreover, interviews and survey of target government officials who are charge in GIAA in local government and experts who are were working for 16 current Gender Impact Assessment Centers were carried out, which delivered their demand for Special GIAA, as well as their opinions about its vitalization measures.


Based upon this research, the summary of development of a Specific GIAA standard model and GIAA vitalization plan for a local government is as following. Firstly, Specific GIAA standard model for a local government in this research provides application direction of the model and definition of its concept, which also includes an improvement scheme for current GIAA standard ordinance, implementing agents or agencies and targeted agencies of GIAA, operation procedure of GIAA and methods, a standard for developing target policies and its selection, a standard of selection for a research execution and its system, a format of research reports, an indicator of major assessment and analysis, delivery of results and monitoring of results reflection and guidelines for submission to MOGEF.


Secondly, besides elements of standard model proposed above this research proposes special policy agenda for vitalization of Special GIAA. A local government needs to build its capacity to implement Special GIAA by securing budget for Special GIAA research projects, arranging administrative personnel who are in charge of GIAA, and strengthening expertise of members of local governments’ GIAA Committee. In accordance with efforts of local governments, MOGEF should conduct Specific GIAA training for government officials and consultants, support budget and manpower for local governments to implement Specific GIAA, and information sharing system for local governments’ Specific GIAA.
