Abstract: Gender mainstreaming in the EU has made significant progress in promoting gender equality. However, challenges remain in implementation, and criticism has led to a shift towards more inclusive approaches that take into account a wider range of identities and experiences, е.g. related to age, ethnicity, disability, religion, etc.
The webinar will cover the following topics:
- History and implementation in the European Union.
- Progress in society.
- Difficulties and challenges.
- Criticisms and new interpretations.
