Project ID: 36774
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

This is the final report of the TRANSGEN project. Gender mainstreaming is the integration of the gender perspective into every stage of policy processes - design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation - with a view to promoting equality between women and men. TRANSGEN aimed at translating and advancing the idea of gender mainstreaming in the field of transport and mobility by conducting research on current state-of-the-art, policies and patterns in the EU and providing recommendations.

In the beginning of the report there is a background for the project and the report, and in Chapter 2 the conceptual understandings that are used to frame this report are presented. Chapter 3 is based on a research mapping of existing scientific research. Chapter 4 looks at the gendered transport sector, focusing on the structural level. Chapter 5 is focused at gender mainstreaming in transport policy and planning. Finally, Chapter 6 offers a set of policy guidelines.
