The Youth Sector, the EYF and gender

The Youth Department has been integrating for many years a gender dimension in its policy, educational approaches and practices through the European Youth Centres and the European Youth Foundation.  

The main gender issues addressed within the Youth Programme:

  • gender-based violence and trafficking;
  • sexual and reproductive rights;
  • sexual orientation and gender identity;
  • combating discrimination against women, including misogyny and sexism – including in social media. The No Hate Speech Movement team and  the Gender Equality Division jointly organised a seminar Combating Sexist Hate Speech, on 10-12 February 2016;
  • heteronormativity and discrimination of “invisible” groups such as intersex (Gender Matters manual is a helpful resource when addressing heteronormativity and gender identity);
  • combating discrimination and homophobia.

Gender is also part of the major projects of the Youth Sector:

The European Youth Foundation promotes the integration of a “gender perspective” in the activities it supports run by non-governmental youth organisations, contributing to the Council of Europe Gender Equality Strategy (Objective 5: “Achieving Gender Mainstreaming in all policies and measures”) and the Recommendation CM/Rec(2010)5 of the Committee of Ministers on measures to combat discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity.
