Sectoral Brief: Gender and Security

27.08.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

The complex and evolving security threats the EU is facing, such as organised crime, terrorism, cyberviolence and hybrid threats, have placed security high on the political agenda of both the previous Commission (2014–2019) and the current Commission (2019–2024).

Women and men, and girls and boys experience conflict, insecurity and threats differently and the impact of security policies is not equal across different groups. This brief focuses on the EU’s internal security policy and highlights some of the main areas of gender inequality in the area.
