At the initiative of the FEMM Committee, the European Parliament is holding its first ever European Gender Equality Week during the last week of October 2020.

Več podrobnosti

2020 is a special year, marking the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. This important milestone provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the achievements and future challenges for the advancement of girls' and women's rights and gender equality. Therefore, the European Parliament is holding for the first time its European Gender Equality Week, which gives a much-needed input to the long lasting battle for women's empowerment and gender equality as well as more visibility and recognition to gender mainstreaming in all policy areas.

Most committees taking part in the Gender Equality Week are organizing events during the last days of October, while some others will look into gender mainstreaming aspects in their fields of competences later this year.

Please consult below the Draft programme and details of events happening during the European Gender Equality Week.

[Full title] Towards strategic autonomy in European security and defence: The EU role in promoting peace in today’s world
In a strategic environment ‘engulfed by flames’, ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic and increasingly characterised by a geopolitical competition for power, the EU stands out in its general approach to peace, security and defence. [...]

Is the EU equipped to face a series of threats that have only intensified as a result of the pandemic?
This EPRS policy roundtable will address these questions from different perspectives. Our panel of experts will include Arnout Molenaar (Head of Unit, Security and Defence Policy Division, European External Action Service), Jana Puglierin (Director, Berlin Office and Senior Policy Fellow, European Council on Foreign Relations), and Elena Lazarou (EPRS, Acting Head of External Policies Unit).
