14-10-2016

The focus of the study is to assess how gender mainstreaming is applied in the EU funds allocations for 2014-2020. The focus is on ESIFs funding for childcare and gender mainstreaming in the use of Horizon 2020 and the REC Programmes on the Gender Equality Objective and the follow-up of Daphne Programmes on VAW. The selected countries are: Croatia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden and the UK, and the reference period is 2014-2016. The assessment shows that notwithstanding the commitment to gender mainstreaming, gender budgeting is not systematically applied in the EU general budget and the selected programmes.
