The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) collected data from all European Union (EU) Member States to assess the situation of institutional mechanisms for the promotion of gender equality and gender mainstreaming in December 2021.
The data collection used a revised conceptual and measurement framework that develops the four officially adopted indicators by the Council of the European Union for monitoring Area H of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) dealing with institutional mechanisms for the promotion of gender equality and gender mainstreaming.
This report presents the results of the data collection and analysis of the status of gender equality and gender mainstreaming across the EU. It introduces the background to the study, followed by a description of the methods used in the data collection and an outline of the data gaps.
It then analyses the results of the data collection, by indicator and sub-indicator, including an outline of the measurement framework. Where data is comparable, the study analyses any changes since EIGE’s data collection in 2012. The report closes with conclusions and policy recommendations.
