Project Details


The Gender Equality in Practice Program is an innovative comparative empirical research program that brings together feminist scholars who are interested in the effects of equality policies in different institutional settings and issue contexts.
They examine the question of whether equality policies in democracies lead to greater gender equality. The research treats gender equality across a range of public policies that are directed at or will likely affect gender relations. The program focuses on the implementation phases of a range of selected policy areas in a set of broadly comparable countries. Drawing on feminist theories of gender quality GEPP examines an extensive range of public policies that affect gender relations in both the public and private spheres of social and personal life in modern democracies.
