Greece // Structures

Established in 1985, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), which is part of the Ministry of Interior, is the government agency responsible for designing and monitoring the implementation of policies for gender equality in all sectors. In particular, it is in charge of implementing the national gender-mainstreaming strategy in the framework of the National Programme for Substantive Gender Equality 2010–2013. It also founded and supervises the Research Centre for Gender Equality (KETHI), which aims to enable women’s advancement in all areas of political, economic and social life, within the framework of the policies defined by GSGE. 

In addition, the Ministry of Labour, Social Protection and Welfare has a Gender Equality Department, which is responsible for combating discrimination and promoting gender equality in employment and the labour market.
