European Commission gender equality development aid
Project description

The research examines factors that contribute to successful gender mainstreaming of European Commission (EC) development aid by analysing best and worst-case practices. There are three hypotheses linked to independent variables: the first hypothesis focuses on factors related to the EC delegation, the second concentrates on internal factors in the partner country and the third explores EC preferences and interests.
