Conselho Consultivo da Comissão para a Cidadania e Igualdade de Género
Consultative Council of the Comission for Citizenship and Gender Equality
Aims and objectives
Consultative body for designing, implementing and assessing public policies of education for citizenship and promotion of gender equality.
Results and impact
The external evaluation on the 3rd Plan (APEUFEUC, 2011) reports some problems on the effectiveness os the Consultative Council's meetings. These meetings are perceived as non-productive and were used to present policies instead of discussing them. For instance, it has been mentioned that the documents to be discussed were sent in the day before or on the day itself of the meeting. As regards the participation of the members of the different sections, the participation of NGOs has been perceived as disruptive in some occasions, and the counsellors for equality rarely participate in the meetings.
