This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee, examines the added value of developing a democratic rule of law and fundamental rights-based approach to the protection of minorities in the EU legal system, from an ‘intersectional’ viewpoint.

 

Given the continued debates and misconceptions around both Muslim women and feminism, the European Network against Racism (ENAR) is debunking some of the more common stereotypes about feminism and Muslim women in Europe in order to promote a shared understanding of equal treatment in a diverse society.

This study aims to map existing Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in the public and private sectors in the EU Member States, as far as data are available. It aims to analyse how GEPs have both impacted and are impacting the economic situation of women in the EU, analyses national legislation and collective agreements in connection with GEPs, analyses the impact of the crisis and subsequent austerity on GEPs and, more in-depth, analyses the substance and impact of GEPs in the private and public sectors in two Member States, Austria and Spain.

Anti-migrant political discourses and exclusionary migration policies are having a disproportionate impact on racialised migrants, according to a new report by the European Network Against Racism, covering 26 EU countries.

EU citizens are increasingly concerned that – for the first time in decades – today’s young people will have fewer opportunities for upward social mobility than their parents’ generation. These concerns have reduced the sense of trust in the fabric of European societies; in response, policymakers are giving higher priority to measures aimed at combating social inequality. This research report, written by Eurofound – the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions – is the first to examine patterns of social mobility across all 28 Member States.
