AER “equal opportunities for men and women”
The Assembly of European Regions (AER) and the Institut Català de la Dona are organising a Conference under the heading “Women in decision-making in the regions of Europe: men and women sharing power” on 25th and 26th October 2002 in Barcelona. The 4th annual Conference of the AER on equal opportunities for men and women will take a look at:
Women in the economic and political scene in Europe
The idea is to study the position of women in both political and economic decision-making circles and to consider means of enhancing their roles and reaching an equal gender balance
A country by country presentation of the political representation of women in regional government
Five years after the first survey carried out within AER member regions on the distribution of mandates within regional political and administrative bodies, the AER has once again launched its enquiry on the evolution of the situation.
Participants will adopt a final declaration for the attention of the European institutions and the regions of Europe aiming at the continued progress of gender equality.
