Changing European gender relations, gender equality policy concerning employment and the labour market - Policy synthesis of EU research resultsFunded under: FP7-PEOPLE
The review addresses the policy domain of gender and equal opportunities in relation to employment and labour market policies. The findings of six research projects fall into four clusters that mirror the concerns of policy makers: gender inequalities in labour market participation; labour market segregation and the nature of womens work; flexible employment, family-friendly work and work-life balance; welfare and social exclusion; and the formulation and implementation of gender equality policies. The research reviewed highlights several gaps in our understanding of labour market dynamics as they affect gender equality and policy formulation. The need for further research has been identified on specific topics, including a systematic evaluation of flexible work forms on gender equality, developing new understandings of skill, and social protection and social exclusion.
