    Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. Drawing on comparative research from five countries, What Works in Improving Gender Equality provides an accessible analysis of what gender equality means and how we can achieve it by adapting best practices in care policies from other countries.

    Realistic policy solutions are reached by examining the contexts in which childcare and longterm care policies are developed, and what difficulties might need to be overcome in applying the lessons from different international models.

    Kirstein Rumery is a professor of social policy at the University of Stirling, a senior fellow of the Centre on Constitutional Change, and co-director of the Centre on Gender and Feminist Studies.

    Craig McAngus is a research fellow at the University of Stirling and fellow of the Centre on Constitutional Change.

    Alcuin Edwards has worked for over 25 years as a policy officer and advisor to the UK government on health policy and children’s policy.
