Inspiring practices

Civil society organisations – NGOs, local governments, or citizens – have developed many inspiring initiatives to alleviate the negative impact of COVID-19 policies on inequalities. Our team of national researchers has collected and highlighted a set of particularly relevant initiatives in 31 European countries: the EU27, Iceland, Serbia, Turkey, and the UK.

The inspiring practices currently cover eight specific domains: gender-based violence, the labour market, the economy, gender-pay and pension gaps, gender care gaps, decision-making and politics, environmental justice, human and fundamental rights.
