The ECPR published its first Gender Study in spring 2017, looking at levels of participation of women and men in all ECPR activities during 2016. The Executive Committee discussed the findings at its meeting in Oslo, September 2017 and agreed to make this review of participation data an annual activity.
Drawing on the outcomes of the 2016 and 2017 Studies, the Executive Committee led by Birgit Sauer (EC member 2012–2018) published a Gender Equality Plan (GEP) in 2018.
The GEP sets out a series of targets to reach gender-equal participation across all ECPR's sub-organisations, activities and events. Its impact will be monitored regularly by the Executive Committee, and reviewed formally each year through the Gender Study.
