The workshop, organised jointly by Policy Department C and the Policy Department of DG EXPO for FEMM and DEVE Committees, brought opinions of experts on the implementation of the Joint Staff Working Document on "Transforming the lives of girls and women through EU external relations", which was published by the European Commission and the EEAS on 21 September 2015.

It brought valuable insights for the preparation of an implementation report on the same topic, on which both Committees are working. Co-rapporteurs are Ms Dubravka Suica (EPP, Croatia) on behalf of FEMM and Ms Linda McAvan (S&D, UK) on behalf of DEVE.

The document includes the gender action plan for development 2016-2020 and is a new framework for the EU's activities on gender equality and women's empowerment in the EU's external relations, proposing a refreshed approach for the EU's policy and political commitments on gender equality to transform into more effective delivery of concrete results for girls and women.
