Round Table Discussions on Women’s Research Centre in Higher Education-2

1.Brief description of the activity

In order to support research excellence, it is important to strengthen gender and social inclusion in research and higher education development, through round table discussion on women’s research center in higher education. The knowledge sharing will be based on the evidences. The resource persons, facilitators and participants are persons who understand the contexts of women’s research center in higher education

2.Background and purpose of the activity

The KSI diagnostic on gender entitled, “Study of Knowledge Needs and Supply Constraints for Gender Research in Indonesia’s Knowledge Sector” and the DFAT KSI program design document highlighted gender as an important cross cutting issue for KSI. The design document states that the “extent to which the knowledge sector delivers equitable policies for both men and women will determine the success of the Knowledge Sector program.” KSI seeks to mainstream gender into the overall work of the program in particular by integrating gender analysis into research production and research utilization by public sector, policy research institutes, and civil society organizations. KSI will align itself with GOI gender sensitive policies to deliver program and work activities that are aimed at developing effective and socially accountable policies that meet national development priorities.

KSI will align with GOI policies including Presidential Instruction No. 9/2000 on Gender Mainstreaming in National Development Plan, the Circular Letter from Bappenas, Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Home Affairs in 2012 on the National Strategy to Accelerate Gender Mainstreaming (GM) through Gender Responsive Planning and Budgeting (GRPB), MOHA Regulation No. 15/2008 and No. 67/2011 on Guidelines for Implementation GRPB in Regions, and subnational gender working groups, gender budget statements (GBS), and gender action plan (GAP). KSI and DFAT posit Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) as an important aspect to deliver the program as well as work activities.

The purpose of the work on Research and Higher Education (RHE) is to identify and develop strategies to address the key systemic factors constraining the production of high-quality evidence. Work includes identification of and activities to address some of these barriers, facilitating interactions between the key stakeholders and providing policy advice to address opportunities for early impact. 

Based on “Study of Knowledge Needs and Supply Constraints for Gender Research in Indonesia’s Knowledge Sector”, one of its program recommendations from the supply side and related with RHE work it is necessary to strengthen universities, especially Graduate Program in Gender Studies producing gender studies experts, and PSW/PSG carrying out special researches on gender issues. In addition, although a clear distinction among supply, demand and intermediary sides is required due to low production of gender knowledge in Indonesia, it is essential to develop consciousness that all institutions are also ‘knowledge institutions”, knowledge supplying institutions, or, at least, data supplying institutions. The research has successfully identified interesting and important findings, coupled with obstacles in providing and using knowledge on gender which have allow the research team to recognize the revitalization needed. This study has also identified strategic and practical recommendations to improve the needs to prepare policies, to translate the need for knowledge from the Government, and to strengthen knowledge production which will ultimately match the demand for knowledge and supply of knowledge. This study was done August 2011, and need to be updated. It seems the findings and recommendations are still relevant with the current context.

In recognition of this, KSI plans to facilitate roundtable discussion about to review the Study of Knowledge Needs and Supply Constraints for Gender Research in Indonesia’s Knowledge Sector, especially to look at in-depth the women’s research center in university and discussion operationally on the revitalization of PSW/PSG and graduate program in gender studies as knowledge institution and research center on gender issue.
