Gender Equality Policies
The analysis of policies for gender equality is a component of several of the UNESCO Chair projects. It is the main focus of the 'Quing' project, which is concerned with the quality of gender equality policies in the Member States of the EU.
Quing is an Integrated Project funded by the European Union under Framework 6 to investigate gender and citizenship in a multicultural context, 2006-2011. The project involves close analysis of key policy documents on gender equality in employment, gender-based violence and intimate citizenship, as well as the comparative analysis of the varied institutional and social structural environments under which these policies develop. Quing is contributing to the development of gender theory, especially in relation to intersectionality and to the theorisation of differences in gender regimes, as well as to more effective gender equality policies. There are partners in Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, and Turkey. The overall project is coordinated by Mieke Verloo in Vienna. The strand on 'intersectionality' and the Lancaster node are coordinated by Sylvia Walby at Lancaster. Dr Jo Armstrong and Dr Sofia Strid are researchers on the project.
