Abstract
This article examines gender mainstreaming in European Union (EU) development aid toward the European Neighborhood through quantitative and qualitative research of policy documents. The objective is to evaluate whether a shift has been made from a "Women in Development" paradigm to a "Gender and Development" paradigm. First, documents are examined quantitatively, looking at language, format, and budget. Next, the qualitative analysis embarks on a deeper reading of how gender equality is approached. The data indicate that a shift toward the "Gender and Development" paradigm has not been made. The internal European agenda as well as the limited space for civil society are proposed as explanations.
