This publication is part of EIGE’s broader mandate to moni­tor progress towards gender equality within the EU policy framework, specifically in relation to the strategic objectives of the Beijing Platform for Action (acknowledged by the Eu­ropean Council in 1995).

The report looks at how Member States fared on gender equality in power and decision-making positions within bodies of public, eco­nomic and social power between 2003-2014. The report also presents new data on decision-making in sports organisations.
