Project Summary

Gender equality is a topic of increasing relevance in the EU and worldwide, but its measurement is mainly limited to national levels. During the past years, various experiences tried to exploit gender equality at a subnational (regional) level, but they remained country-specific and limited to specific domains. The ongoing Jean Monnet Regional Gender Equality Measurement in the EU (ReGEM) project aims at providing a regional mapping of the most comprehensive gender equality indicator in Europe, the Gender Equality Index (GEI) of the European Institute on Gender Equality (EIGE). This measure covers 14 sub-domains and is available for all 27 Member States of the EU and the UK. The ReGEM project will assess the data availability at the NUTS2 (regional) level and the feasibility of constructing a Regional Gender Equality Index (R-GEI), identifying a consistent system of indicators which can be used as a common basis for gender equality measurements at regional level in Europe. The project will provide a preliminary analysis of the structure and evolution of regional gender (in)equality by comparing four major EU countries (Italy, France, Spain and Germany), covering a total of 98 regions.
