Gender mainstreaming active inclusion policies

The EU recognizes gender equality as a fundamental right and as a necessary condition for growth, employment, and social cohesion. Gender inequalities, however, are an important feature of poverty and social exclusion. This report therefore explores the extent to which Member States and EEA/EFTA countries have developed gender equality considerations in their policies designed for the active inclusion of vulnerable groups in society. The report provides concrete policy examples across the three pillars of the active inclusion strategy, these being adequate income support, inclusive labour markets and access to quality services. It also argues that proper gender mainstreaming of policies, for the most part, is still underdeveloped. This publication is available in English only, with an executive summary in English, German and French.
