Beijing Indicators Preparatory Working Group
EIGE is currently preparing the necessary groundwork for the collection of existing data and information on Gender issues in line with its 2010 Annual Work Programme. As a first step towards completing these tasks, EIGE organised a preparatory meeting on 17 May 2010, in Vilnius, with 6 active Beijing Indicators experts from around Europe.
The meeting culminated in an in-depth discussion on the various support processes and stages which will be of use to both the current and future EU Presidencies as well as to the Member States. An additional item of discussion included the scope and functions of the future working group on Beijing indicators. A document related to this activity was presented to the Members of the Experts' Forum at their meeting on 3-4 June 2010.
