Abstract

This thesis is a qualitative frame analysis approach investigating gender equality management in UNDP/UNFPA country offices in Jordan and Egypt. Moreover, this thesis conducted Nvivo (8) as an assisting approach in the analysis. Unlike other gender equality studies, this thesis is taking gender equality further than gender mainstreaming and equal opportunities and diversity. The systematic approach of the thesis is based on analyzing three sets of data, gender equality country analysis of Jordan and Egypt, UNDP/UNFPA perspectives of managing gender equality through selected policy reports, and finally the perspectives of the participants working within these offices towards managing gender equality. The field work consisted of nineteen semi-structured interviews in the selected country offices. The study limitations are centered on the researcher identity as an outsider of the UN and on the very limited literature on gender equality management especially within the UN. Alongside producing academic literature, this thesis suggested a systematic understanding to managing gender equality in UNDP/UNFPA selected country offices.
