Presentation Abstract

This paper analyzes the interaction of endogenous and exogenous variables that contributed to the advancing of gender equality in Madagascar since its independence in 1960. We use path dependency approach to analyze different national policy events in relation to gender equality. We found that evolution of gender equality in Madagascar has been accidental. Even though the Malagasy government had intentions to promote gender equality their efforts did not have a significant positive outcome due to competing interest among policy actors and available resources.
