What is the state of play in your municipality or region?

European Charter on equality of women and men in local life

How do you encourage women’s participation in local elections? What is your strategy to eliminate gender harassment? Did you manage to ensure gender balance within advisory bodies set up by the local authority? We invite the Charter signatories to complete our survey on the state of play of gender equality at the local level. 

For you, this survey represents a mean to assess the impact of your strategies. For us, it will be the opportunity to get an overview of the equality situation within European municipalities and regions. We will use the results to elaborate a report available for you in an online database. 

How to answer the questionnaire?

You have until Sunday 15 of March to fulfil in the questionnaire. As a first step, only signatories in the European Union having signed the Charter before January 2014 will be allowed to participate. The evaluation will be made available for all signatories by the end of the project in October 2015.

The questionnaire is available in EnglishFrenchCzechDutchFinnishGermanGreekHungarianItalianLatvianPolish,PortugueseRomanianSlovakSlovenianSpanish and Swedish
