The report addresses the consequences of gender inequality on economic development in the EU Mediterranean Partners countries. It then proposes a list of recommendations on how to improve women’s access to an economic life. Thus, the study focuses on the social, cultural, anthropological or political considerations that mark the participation of women in the economic activity of the Mediterranean countries, both in the formal and informal economy and in the rural world. It seeks paths that could enable an increase in the participation of women in the labour market in the region.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
