In order to build on the OECD’s ground-breaking work on gender and competition policy, and to further develop our understanding of how, in practice, competition agencies and competition policy more generally can make operational, analytical or policy changes to create a gender inclusive competition policy, the OECD, with the support of the Canadian government and the Canadian Competition Bureau, is launching a Call for Proposals for original applied research on the topic of gender and competition policy (see attached). This research will feed into practical guidance for the Canadian Competition Bureau and any other interested competition authorities on How to Build a Gender Inclusive Competition Policy.
The Call is open to those in academia, competition agencies, regulators, private practice, consultancies and the wider policy world. Initial proposals could be from a few paragraphs up to two pages. The deadline is 1 October 2020 and it is worth noting that proposals might be on a topic that the author does not have the time to develop further themselves (provided they are willing for others to do so), hence proposals from agency staff are particularly welcome. We would also be grateful if agencies were able to disseminate this call as broadly as possible through their own networks. For more information about the Call and subsequent workshops to come, please see our dedicated page http://oe.cd/gicp.
