A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

20-06-2018 - Gender Budgeting: State of Play and way forward - Hearing - 20.6.2018

FEMM 24-09-2018 - 14:02
Gender Pay Gap

The Council of Europe defines gender budgeting as a 'gender based assessment of budgets incorporating a gender perspective at all levels of the budgetary process and restructuring revenues and expenditures in order to promote gender equality'. The FEMM Committee discussed this sensitive issue especially in the framework of the future MFF and in relation to the implementation of the Daphne program.

The hearing counted the participation of researchers and practitioners in the field of budgeting, gender and social affairs. The outcome of the event provided a key input for an oral question and a resolution to be tabled on behalf of FEMM.
