At the end of March 2007, Rosalind Eyben helped organise a workshop on gender equality and the Paris Declaration on aid effectiveness at the request of DFID’s regional office in SE Asia in Bangkok on behalf of a tripartite steering group, including the World Bank and UNIFEM. This complimented her global hub research into examining whether new international aid policy and practice is either a pathway or bottleneck for supporting women's empowerment.

The final report to the steering group states that the Paris principles (ownership, alignment, harmonisation, managing for results and mutual accountability) provide the opportunity for governments, civil society and donors to work together in more genuine partnerships provided the search for efficiency gains is not at the expense of securing long term impact and that donors change their own organisational behaviour where this constrains gender equality efforts.
