The Council of Europe Gender Equality Strategy 2013-2018 states 'achieving equality is central to the fulfilment of the Council of Europe's mission: safeguarding human rights, uploading democracy and preserving the rule of law'.
Gender issues have become increasingly integrated into development and sectoral policy planning, and have been proven to be a crucial component of building an innovative society and successful economy, as well as to securing international financial support for many organisations. Nevertheless, despite there being increased awareness of the economic, social and political damage caused by gender discrimination, the UN has noted that the ‘gains have been too slow and too uneven'. This course examines and analyses a broad range of issues, such as the relationship between gender and development, education and health.
