Embodied Institutionalism: A New Model for Gender Equity Reform

Project description

An innovative method for advancing gender equality

Progress towards effective gender equality seems to be too slow. The EU’s new Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2050 sets out key actions and ensures an equality perspective will be included in all EU policy areas. The focus of the EU-funded EIGER project is on education. It will study current reforms of the tertiary level aimed at advancing gender equality. Specifically, the project defines as embodied institutionalism an innovative method based on the integration of influence, embodiment and institutions. It will carry out a comparative analysis of the higher education contexts of Australia and Europe since the two show significant differences, focusing on how the effective and embodied standards typical to these contexts influence the favourable outcome of educational reforms related to gender equality.
