Gender equality is the principle that women and men, girls and boys, should have the same rights, freedoms and opportunities to fulfil their potential and contribute to society. It is one of the fundamental values enshrined in the EU treaties.
Gender mainstreaming is the practice of systematically considering gender when preparing, designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating all policies and activities.
With negotiations to prepare the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework currently under way, our audit aims to assess whether the Commission has made use of gender mainstreaming in the EU budget to promote equality between women and men.
