Video summary of the ALDE ADLE Conference: A 2020 Gender Perspective for the Eu & Turkey

Event date: 05/05/10 16:30 to 19:00
Location: BE BRUSSELS P4B001

This conference aims to highlight and examine some of the major challenges for Gender Equality in 2020, both for the EU and for Turkey.
Some lessons can be learnt from the EU Roadmap for Gender Equality 2006-2010. Policymakers will carefully consider such topical issues as employment for women, parental leave, the impact of the economic crisis on both women and men, impact assessments of DAPHNE programmes and violence against women, before turning to the question:
Do we need a new framework for gender equality by 2020 on both sides of Europe - East and West?

Making comparisons between the EU and Turkey could be useful in order to reach some conclusions on the above issues, and will certainly throw light on some of the most sensitive criteria relative to the EU accession progress and enlargement.
