Gender Equality and Gender Mainstreaming in the COVID-19 Recovery

The purpose of this study is to assess the EU recovery response to the COVID-19 pandemic from a gender perspective. More specifically, the study includes three main components. The study team will identify the challenges and opportunities to advance gender equality within the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility regulation (legal case) and analyse how gender equality objectives have been addressed in the National Recovery and Recovery Plans of the 27 EU member countries (policy case). Additionally, the study will assess, through a EUROMOD microsimulation, the effect of selected COVID-19-related national policy measures (such as taxes and benefits) on gender gaps in income and earnings in 27 member countries (economic case).
