Equal opportunities for men and women in public procurement contracts : a few recommendations

The law of 16 December 2002 establishing the Institute for equality between women and men explicitly states that one of its tasks is to “oversee observance of equality between women and men, combat any kind of sex discrimination and gender-based inequality, and develop instruments and strategies based on an integrated approach to the gender issue.” The Institute wants to use various channels to see to it that equality of the sexes is introduced in various areas of society.
