The agency dedicated to gender equality and endorsing gender mainstreaming is the Ministry for Equal Opportunities, established in 2005 (from 1995 to 2005 it was known as the Ministry for the Promotion of Women). It also manages an Interministerial Committee for Gender Equality, made up of members of each ministry, with a coordination role for gender-equality policies. Since 2005, gender-competence cells have been put in place and are tasked with internally implementing gender-equality policies within the policy areas of each ministry.
