Austerity Measures and Gender Equality
The project aims to address the issue of gender impact assessment to the Slovenian Government. The Slovenian Government is obliged on the basis of the existing gender equality legislation to implement gender impact assessment when introducing new legislation. The analysis of governmental austerity measures, introduced in times of economic and financial crisis in Slovenia, shows its consequences on the lives of women and gender equality. The analysis provides the gender impact assessment of some of the austerity measures.
