Gender Equality, Development and Women’s Rights in the EU Mediterranean Basin in the Years of Financial, Political and Social Crisis

The economic instability affecting many segments of societies in the European Union’s Mediterranean basin has had a negative impact on many people, particularly women. Historically, economic recessions as well as socio-political instability have placed a disproportionate burden on women. In many contexts women are more likely than men to be vulnerable, especially in terms of working conditions.

Despite the increased attention to the problem of violence against women, there is still a substantial lack of information and data on the scope and extent of the phenomenon.

This is true also for the European Union, where no comparable data on violence against women exists.
