Final publication of NRP 60

The book reflects on the results of NRP 60 to analyse the state of gender equality in Switzerland.

Gender Equality has not yet been achieved in many western countries. The publication “Gender Equality in Context: Policies and Practices in Switzerland” takes Switzerland as a case study for a critical reflection on the state of gender equality in different policy areas such as education, family and labour. The collection of articles reveals how gender policies and cultural contexts interact with social practices of gender (in)equality. They also outline the gender(ed) effects of recent changes and reform strategies for scientists, politicians and practitioners.
