Submitted by rruggia on Sun, 07/26/2020 - 09:17

This document provides key considerations and examples of how gender and social inclusion (GESI) can be integrated into potential COVID-19 response options/strategies via existing social protection and / or humanitarian programmes (or a hybrid approach, leveraging social protection delivery systems and capacity). It aims to highlight key considerations for integrating GESI into social protection design and operation, in an effort to increase wellbeing and dignity, while minimising potential negative effects on vulnerable populations.

New Deal For Irish Families

Submitted by fabbri on Tue, 07/10/2018 - 10:22

Social Europe (10.07.2018)  With the repeal of the 8th amendment Irish women and their partners will have a choice if and when to have children later this year. This choice will have major implications for social policy and the development of a family-friendly welfare state in Ireland. From my own experience Irish people are extremely child-friendly but Ireland as a country offers little support to families. It will be the first time that women will make these choices on this island, so services and income protection will have to be attractive for families.

Gender equality: Seminar in Reykjavik, Iceland 2018

Submitted by -girard on Thu, 07/05/2018 - 15:17

Documents, presentation and other related material from the Seminar in Reykjavik in June 2018 on gender equality and gender mainstreaming as a tool to reduce the gender pay gap and the gender pension gap, resulting from a lower participation of women in the labour market, part-time jobs and lower wages.

It also showed the example of Iceland, where non transferable maternity and paternity leaves led to an increased participation of the fathers in the care and education of children and therefore creating more equality.
