Duration: October – December 2010

Donor: World Bank

In October 2010, ISDS was requested to conduct a rapid qualitative assessment on gender and economic decision-making in Vietnam to inform the upcoming World Bank World Development Report on Gender Equality and Development (WDR 2012), as well as country policy dialogues and programs.  The purpose of the assessment is to explore:

    (i)     Women's and men's subjective views of and experiences with making key economic decisions, such as how to make a living and how to build and protect major assets; and

    (ii)    hether and how the gender norms that surround these choices may be shifting—as educational opportunities expand, as the economy changes, as connectivity rises, and so forth.

The methodology of this assessment is designed to explore the gender dimensions that surround economic decision-making processes, and whether and how they may be changing.

The focus of this assessment is to reveal the existing gender power relations and social norms, and seek to answer the question whether and how women may be assuming more control over their lives in areas that relate to important economic decisions. Changing process in men's decision making processes is also explored.  In particular, the assessment examines how major economic decisions are considered, negotiated, and pursued with family members and with other actors in the marketplace and wider community.  The questions seek to uncover whether the processes surrounding economic decision making in the different arenas are gender inclusive and cooperative.

Also, this assessment is looking for evidence of shifting gender norms, and how such shifts may be affecting the economic options and decisions of women and men in their different roles as individuals, members of households, workers, and citizens.

The assessment was conducted in Ha Noi, the capital city and Hung Yen, a poor province in the Red River Delta. In each of these two provinces, two urban/rural communes were selected.
