The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), an autonomous body within the framework of the European Union policies and initiatives, has developed a profile on the relevance of gender in maritime affairs and fisheries.

In a clear and attractive interactive display, the profile covers the relevant policies, the issues concerning gender equality, the objectives, how gender equality can be addressed in the policy cycle, and example actions underway in France and Spain. The profile also attempts to situate gender in relation to key policy objectives of the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy.

The profile page is well worth visiting: see the link.
