Gender equality index main findings by European Institute for Gender Equality( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2013, the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) launched the Gender Equality Index (GEI). The need for the Gender Equality Index was initially introduced by the European Commission in the Roadmap for equality between women and men 2006–10.The EIGE was assigned the task of constructing a composite indicator on gender equality that reflects the multifaceted reality of gender equality, and is specifically tailored towards the policy framework of the European Union (EU) and Member States. The work on the development of the Gender Equality Index for Europe started in 2010 and the results were officially launched at an EU conference in Brussels on 13 June 2013. The Gender Equality Index relies on a trustworthy statistical methodology. In spite of the scarcity of data, stringent criteria are applied to the gender indicators, requiring that variables are available and comparable across all Member States. The computation of the Gender Equality Index avoided subjective decisions in the way a weighting and aggregation method for the index was selected. The process relied on a computation of more than 3 000 alternatives in order to choose the best and most robust index. The index report presents scores for each Member State and an EU average, enabling a detailed assessment of how close the EU and Member States have come to achieving gender equality in each of the critical domains (work, money, health, power, time and knowledge), and within the EU policy agenda. With an average score of 54.0 (where 1 stands for absolute gender inequality and 100 for full gender equality), the European Union is only halfway towards a gender-equal society. The Gender Equality Index is not a static tool. The intention is to build on the current index by exploring potential new indicators, by filling the empty satellite domains, and by researching ways of linking the gender indicators to other economic and social indicators to reveal new information to guide policymaking. With this in mind, on 14 and 15 October 2013, EIGE held an online discussion to engage with experts — researchers, statisticians and those who use statistical indicators in their work — in an open and inclusive exchange of views on the Gender Equality Index and how it might be both broadened and deepened
Gender equality and climate change review of the implementation in the EU of area K of the Beijing platform for action : women and the environment : main findings by European Institute for Gender Equality( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the modern era. It is an important area of policy intervention in the EU. The EU has adopted an integrated approach to climate and energy policy and plays a leading role in strengthening global efforts to protect the climate. Moreover, the EU is bound to strive for equality between women and men in all its activities. EU commitment to gender mainstreaming calls for actions and concrete measures so that a gender equality perspective is incorporated in environmental policies and programmes at all levels and at all stages by the actors involved in policymaking. In line with the commitments of the EU to gender mainstreaming and gender equality, the Danish Presidency will focus on climate change from a gender equality perspective and develop indicators to measure progress in this area. The critical area of ‘Women and the Environment’ has three associated objectives: K.1: Involve women actively in environmental decision-making at all levels; K.2: Integrate gender concerns and perspectives in policies and programmes for sustainable development; K.3: Strengthen or establish mechanisms at the national, regional and international levels to assess the impact of development and environmental policies on women. This report aims at proposing a set of indicators for objective K.1 with a focus on climate change. To do so, it investigates the theoretical linkages between gender issues and climate change, along with evidence from research undertaken in the EU and its Member States in this area. Based on the theoretical basis and on the available data, the report discusses two important dimensions of objective K.1: women’s participation in climate change decision-making at the national, EU and international levels, and the proportion of women tertiary graduates among all graduates in scientific and technical fields related to climate change
Gender equality and economic independence part-time work and self-empolyment ; review of the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action in the EU Member States ; main findings by European Institute for Gender Equality( Book )

Equal access to economic resources is not just a matter of ensuring equal economic independence between women and men, but it has also been recognised as a prerequisite for the achievement of economic growth, prosperity and competitiveness. The recent economic downturn has brought unprecedented challenges for many Member States and for the European Union as a whole, and has resulted in a reduction in public funding and resources in some Member States, including in areas that are important for the pursuit of gender equality. Increasing women’s participation in the labour market and their economic empowerment is therefore crucial in order to foster economic growth and, more importantly, to ensure that the EU makes full use of available talent and human resources. This publication is the sixth report in EIGE’s review of the implementation of the BPfA in the EU and was prepared to support the Greek Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Developed in close cooperation with the Greek government and the European Commission, the report focuses on the importance of gender equality in economic rights and independence, including access to employment, appropriate working conditions and control over economic resources. Through an analytical focus on part-time work and self-employment, the report demonstrates their effect on the economic independence of women and men, as well as on gender equality more broadly. On the basis of this analysis, EIGE proposed a set of indicators and sub-indicators in the area of women and the economy that were endorsed by the Council in June 2014. The report emphasises several important trends. It illustrates that part-time work is an important way of facilitating labour-force participation, for both women and men, since it expands opportunities to meet a variety of life demands and interests over the course of a life. However, one of the strongest gender differences in today’s participation in the labour market is the prevailing over-representation of women in part-time work, which has a significant negative effect on women’s economic independence. The quest for work–life balance in employment is therefore very detrimental to women. In contrast, self-employment provides an opportunity to work on a flexible basis and enhance opportunities to obtain a work–life balance without reducing working hours. However, self-employment can also lead to much lower earnings and income for women, and thus greater risk of poverty over the course of life. Overall, the report shows substantial gender gaps in the labour market. More transformative measures are needed to tackle the structural obstacles that women face when accessing and/or participating in the labour market
Gender equality index 2017 : measuring gender equality in the European Union 2005-2015 : main findings( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gender equality is a fundamental value of the European Union and is essential for its development, growth and cohesion. As such, measuring progress in gender equality is an integral part of effective policymaking. Since its launch in 2013, the Gender Equality Index of the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) has been recognised for its notable contribution to policy debates and increased awareness about gender equality at the EU and national levels. The Gender Equality Index is a composite indicator that measures the complex concept of gender equality. It is a comprehensive measure for assessing the state of art and monitoring progress in gender equality across the EU over time. The Index relies on a conceptual framework that embraces different theoretical approaches to gender equality and integrates key gender equality issues within the EU policy framework (EIGE, 2013). It offers an easy-to-interpret measure for gender equality, indicating how far (or close) the EU and its Member States are from achieving gender equality. To this end, it measures gender gaps and takes into account the context and different levels of achievement of Member States. Since the Index considers gaps that are to the detriment of either women or men as being equally problematic, a high overall score reflects both small (or absent) gender gaps and a good situation for all (e.g. good quality of work of both women and men). Finally, it suggests the different outcomes of EU and national policies for women and men and supports the development and implementation of evidence-based policymaking in the area of gender equality
Review of the implementation in the EU of area K of the Beijing Platform for Action : Women and the Environment : gender equality and climate change( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change is one of the key challenges of our times. Saving the climate for today and for future generations is an EU priority. Research shows that climate change affects women and men differently. Confronted with this challenge, women and men also have different needs, priorities and possibilities, where the voice of women is not sufficiently heard and taken into account. Therefore, to develop and maintain a sustainable and effective response to climate change, a gender approach and gender-sensitive indicators must be an integral part of all policies and actions at all levels

A study of collected narratives on gender perceptions in the 27 EU Member States : Synthesis report by European Institute for Gender Equality( )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ‘Study of collected narratives on gender perceptions in the 27 EU Member States’ has been commissioned by the European Institute for Gender Equality with the aim of mapping the persistence of stereotypical gender attitudes and perceptions. The study has as its central objective the collection of real-life stories related to gender perceptions in the form of narratives. The specific aim with this study is to map stereotypical gender attitudes/perceptions through stories and put these in their narrative form and original language in an online database. These narratives have been analysed with a view to identifying how stereotypical gender perceptions influence people’s lives, as well as to provide background information on possible obstacles for increased gender equality in various contexts and on how stereotypical gender perceptions can be overcome. For the purpose of this study, gender perceptions are defined as “people’s perceptions with regard to (asymmetric) gender roles and attributes of ‘femininity’ / ‘masculinity’”. It is the purpose of this Synthesis report to make a broad, rather than a detailed and focussed analysis of the narratives. The analysis will seek to identify belief systems, patterns and norms of behaviour that reinforce gender stereotypes, including how these may evolve over time. The study wants to point to possible ways of how and why people change their ways of thinking about gender. In this context, the study looks for triggers of change such as key actors or factors that have contributed to breaking a pattern of stereotypical gender perceptions
Administrative data sources on gender-based violence against women in the EU current status and potential for the collection of comparable data; technical analysis by European Institute for Gender Equality( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gender‑based violence against women remains one of the most pervasive human rights violations of our time and affects women disproportionately because of the unequal distribution of power between women and men and the structures supporting this imbalance, which deprives women of enjoying fundamental freedoms. Combating gender‑based violence is a declared goal of the EU institutions and all EU Member States. The overall objective of this study on Administrative Data Sources is to extend the knowledge about the situation of, and possibilities for, administrative data collection on gender‑based violence in the EU-28 Member States, and to gain a comparable overview of the extent, nature and consequences of gender‑based violence across the EU-28. Administrative data reflect only what is recorded by an agency interacting with a victim or perpetrator of gender‑based violence and never the prevalence of gender‑based violence due to the high rate of unreported incidents. But administrative data can provide detailed information on how police, judicial, health and social services respond to the prevention, protection and prosecution of gender‑based violence. The availability of this data in all Member States makes administrative data providers a valuable source of information to be assessed. The results and main findings of the study have been divided into two different reports. The first part is focused on the legal framework and regulations underpinning administrative data collection on gender‑based violence at international and national levels. The second report (current one) describes and analyses the current situation and potential of administrative data sources and related statistical products identified through this research. Both reports seek to support policy‑makers across Europe in the struggle against gender‑based violence by providing guidelines and suggesting methodological tools and indicators to improve and make comparable administrative data collection on gender‑based violence in the European Union

Economic benefits of gender equality in the European Union : report on the empirical application of the model( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present report is part of EIGE's work on the economic benefits of gender equality in the European Union (EU). The aim of this study was to assess the wider socio-economic impacts of narrowing gender gaps as a result of the implementation of measures to improve gender equality in Europe. The report contains the research to inform the modelling approach, describes the modelling approach and scenarios and presents the detailed results and conclusions of the study. It also contains the detailed scenario inputs, the E3ME model description, the displacement effects and the methodological report on testing the model. This study is unique in the EU context, because it uses a robust econometric model to estimate socio-economic outcomes of improving gender equality in several broad areas including education, labour market participation, wages and work-life balance
An Analysis of the Victims' Rights Directive from a Gender Perspective( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report analyses Directive 2012/29/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime, and replacing Council Framework Decision 2001/220/JHA, also called the 'victims’ rights directive'. The analysis has been conducted from a gender perspective. The study is focused on the specificities of the implementation of the directive vis-à-vis victims of gender-based violence and their access to justice. The aim is to assess the directive from the perspective of victims of gender-based violence so as to critically examine measures that could be counterproductive or cause unintended effects, as well as those that could support victims. The report is divided into three parts. The first part of the report — Introduction — includes definitions of gender-based violence that are provided in international documents adopted in both the United Nations’ universal systems and in regional systems — namely, the European Union and Council of Europe. It also refers to the most relevant standards for gender-based violence victim protection measures and data collection developed within these systems and by other organisations. The end of the first part provides background information on the context of the victims’ rights directive. The methodology is presented in detail in the second part. The third and essential part of the report is an analysis of the directive from a gender perspective, taking into account the particular situation of victims of gender-based violence. Every article of the directive is analysed separately using two methods: firstly, according to the rules of legal interpretation, and secondly, in the form of a SWOT analysis, which identifies the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the directive’s implementation
