Özbilgin, Mustafa F., Syed, Jawad, Ali, Faiza and Torunoglu, Dilek (2012) International Transfer of Policies and Practices of Gender Equality in Employment to and among Muslim Majority Countries. Gender, Work & Organization, 19 (4). pp. 345-369. ISSN 0968-6673

This article investigates the premise that it is possible to transpose organizational approaches to equal employment opportunity (EEO) from western countries to Muslim majority countries (MMCs). Drawing on policy interviews and documentary evidence from public sector organizations and international development agencies engaged in the promotion of gender equality in Turkey and Pakistan, we question the effectiveness of diffusion of gender equality policies and practices to and among these two MMCs. Our investigation reveals the primacy of context over essence in developing effective ways to construct EEO policies and practices which can be adopted in MMCs.
