Gender dimension of labour market transitions

This study focuses on the gender dimension of labour market transitions and its implications for policymaking in the areas of active labour market policies, career guidance, and skills development. The ETF initiated this research to map how activation and skills development policies are gaining importance in the neighbouring countries of the European Union as key components of post-COVID-19 recovery, green and digital transitions and strategies to address emerging socio-economic risks and uncertainties, and significant security threats worldwide. The report provides an overview of the key trends in labour market participation among women, education outcomes, and gender-responsive policies and programmes. It sheds light on exemplary policies, national initiatives or donor programmes to enhance gender equality in labour market transitions and to address root causes of inequalities.
