Driving Forward Gender Equality in Europe: Combating Discrimination in the Workplace and Beyond
Dato: 2. juli
Sted: Brussel, Belgia
Arrangør: Public Policy Exchange
Omtale: Gender Equality, one of the founding values of the EU, is not only essential from a human rights perspective, but it also makes sense from an economic viewpoint. It means equal access to resources, as well as empowerment and visibility of both women and men in all spheres of public and private life. Although progress is visible, gender gaps still persist in many areas. At the current rate of change, it is estimated that it would take more than 70 years to make equal pay a reality and almost 40 years to ensure that housework is equally shared between women and men.
To accelerate progress, active policy initiatives are needed to reduce gender-based discrimination in the workplace and beyond. In November 2013, the first Council of Europe Strategy on Gender Equality 2014-2017 was unanimously adopted, with the aim of providing policy guidance and promoting a holistic and integrated approach. At EU level, the Post 2015 Framework is underway – a strategy facing both the difficulties of recession and the need to mainstream a gender perspective in all policies and programme.
Inequality in the 21st Century
Dato: 2.-4. juli
Sted: London, England
Arrangør: Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE)
Omtale: SASE is an international, inter-disciplinary academic organization. The academic disciplines represented in SASE include economics, sociology, political science, organization studies, management, psychology, law and history.
The first decade of the 21st century saw increased controversy over the degree of inequality in contemporary societies. This controversy grew more heated yet due to the fact that even after the financial crisis, the wealth and income of the rich continued to grow disproportionately in spite of their role in the crash.
For anybody interested in socio-economics, therefore, inequality is a central phenomenon where institutions and markets come together, and where the key political questions of an era are enacted.
- How and why has the degree and form of inequality within and between societies changed over the last 50 years?
- How has the gradual dominance of neo-liberal policy-making affected the distribution of inequality between labor and capital and between different social groups?How has the politics of inequality changed in this period? What have been the legitimating ideologies and discourses for different patterns of inequality and how have perceptions about the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of inequality shifted?
- How have changes in state policies impacted on inequality?
- What forms of resistance and opposition to inequalities (such as trade unions, feminist movements, and social movements) have been effective and in what ways?
