Mapping gender training in the European Union and Croatia for the European Institute of Gender Equality
This report is an outcome of the first phase of EIGE’s project on gender training that focused on work to map gender training. The report provides the results of the mapping of current gender training trends across the EU. A further analytical stage will assess the effectiveness of gender training through in-depth research during 2013. The aim of the mapping exercise was to provide an overview of the field of gender training at the international, EU, and Member State levels including Croatia. It also aimed to identify examples of initiatives/activities that represent the most efficient and... effective methods of delivering gender training. The reference period for the study was from 2005 to date, although earlier information is presented where relevant to the objectives of the project. The information was analysed to focus on the following questions: To what extent is gender training a strategic priority for the effective implementation of gender mainstreaming in Europe? What practices exist for gender training in the EU and internationally? What good practice can be identified in gender training in the EU? Who are the main gender training actors and what types of resources are available to them? What are the main gaps in the provision of gender training in the EU? What attempts have been made to set quality principles for gender training?
