Jubeto Yolanda (Basque Country, Spain) 
Lecturer at the Economics Faculty of the University of the Basque Country, within the Applied Eco-
nomics Department. My main research interests cover a broad range of levels of economic activi-
ties. At the beginning I used to work on regional economics, especially centred on the Basque 
Country’s economy, and now I mostly work on international economics (development economics). 
The links between both spheres is also of her interest. I am also very much interested in feminist 
economics, and its applications. 
Related to gender-budgeting, I started to get very interested in that methodology five years ago, 
when the Basque Country’s Basque Government started a pilot experience with the aim of develop-
ing a gender-audit of some programmes within some departments of the government. That project 
was coordinated by Rona Fitzgerald from Scotland. In that initiative, the Women’s Institute of the 
Government, called Emakunde, invited Ronda Sharp and Diane Elson to give some conferences, 
and it also published an interview with Ronda Sharp in their public magazine, which I really found 
At that time, I was a lecturer of economics, especially of development economics and public fi-
nances, and I was working on my PhD looking for an interesting subject to work on. I was interested 
in research fields related to public policies and especially to the role of the public sector in the wel-
fare of the community. On the other hand, I wanted to include the study of the effects of the policies 
on women, and the way governments were putting into practice the Beijing agreement on main-
streaming, but I didn’t know how to start. So the idea of gender-budgeting seemed really inspiring 
and it opened a lot of possibilities of research and hopefully of introducing improvements in 
women’s lives. That is why I decided to write my PhD on gender-budgeting and nowadays I am in 
the process of achieving it.
