Dr Davor Jancic
has acted as principal investigator for an extensive study on the promotion of gender equality through parliamentary diplomacy. The study was commissioned by the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee and published in November 2021.The full study is available here
The purpose of this study is to support EP delegations, committees and subcommittees in implementing the Resolution of 23 October 2020 on gender equality in EU foreign and security policy. Based on desk research as well as quantitative and qualitative empirical analysis, the study describes the existing EP practices of gender equality promotion, analyses whether the current practices deliver on the commitment, and presents what can be learned both from the bottlenecks identified in the EP’s existing institutional arrangements and from the practices of other national parliaments and international parliamentary institutions. The study concludes that while the EP is highly advanced when it comes to gender mainstreaming in external relations, there are a number of aspects that need improvement or fine-tuning. To facilitate the implementation of the overarching EP gender action plan, the study provides a set of policy recommendations aimed at increasing the effectiveness of gender equality promotion through parliamentary diplomacy.
