Our Study: Gender Aspects of the Financial Crisis and Social Welfare Systems for the European Parliament

imageOur new study is an in depth analysis of the impact of the global economic crisis on social welfare systems and how this impacts on women and men differently. We find that the crisis/es creates additional strain on women who are strong users of services and also expected to make up for short falls when services are cut. This will have serious implications for women entering the labour force. The crisis/es could be an opportunity to reform some of the distortions in welfare systems that women fall foul of, particularly in Mediterranean States but, as yet, such opportunities have been missed. A review of all EU-wide impacts but in depth case studies on 6 EU Member States: Sweden, Ireland, UK, Poland, Italy, Greece.
