Towards a fairer, care-focused Europe

Care4Care series

Policy Study

04/03/2021

The Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung started a Social Democratic Initiative for the EU Gender Equality Strategy, placing the role of care work and care jobs in achieving gender equality at the center of our common activities.

By raising the question: Does Europe Care for Care?, we endeavour to promote the cross-fertilization of progressive thinking throughout Europe between stakeholders on the issue of care identifying common challenges and possible good practices across countries, drawing concrete policy recommendations with the objective of feeding into concrete measures both national and EU levels.
