Espon - Gender Imbalances in European Regions

From: http://www.espon.eu/main/Menu_Publications/Menu_MapsOfTheMonth/map1301.html

 



Policy context

5 February 2013 - The Territorial Agenda 2020 highlights that Europe faces challenges with regard to aging and depopulation in several regions including rural and peripheral ones. On growth and social cohesion the Europe 2020 objective of inclusive growth is asking at the same time for the implementation of policies to promote gender equality and to increase labour force participation. Hence, gender imbalances are not only an issue for gender politics. They are both an effect of territorial developments and structures, and a condition for future growth of regions having an impact on social and territorial cohesion.
