Mainstreaming gender in European Union development policy in the European neighborhood
Author
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.
