Gender equality

The OSE has been selected to participate in a new research project coordinated by OpCit Research for the European Parliament’s (EP) Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM). The study will evaluate the impact of political parties’ and independent candidates’ policies and strategies to include and empower women and increase the number of women on electoral lists and in the EP. The study comprises an evaluation of the actions of a range of relevant stakeholders, including the European Women’s Lobby (EWL), national and European political parties, and women’s NGOs.

The OSE was contracted by the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) to conduct research, which resulted in a book on “Social developments in the European Union 2013”. The 15th edition of this publication (published in July 2014) featured authors such as Anton Hemerijck (Fault lines and silver linings in Europe’s social market economy), Frank Vandenbroucke, Bart Vanhercke and John Morley (A European Social Union), and Ferdinand Fichtner (Euro area-wide unemployment insurance).

Angelina Atanasova (PhD in Law, KU Leuven) has been a Researcher at the European Social Observatory since September 2021. Her work covers the areas of gender equality and discrimination, disability rights, social inclusion as well as more specifically the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the social policy domain. In her work, she combines her in-depth knowledge of EU law with her methodological skills in conducting qualitative and quantitative analysis.
