We are proud to launch our own Sustainable Diversity Goals at CEPS this September. With thanks to an Open Society Foundation Grant, CEPS will be developing a set of targets to promote diversity in the field of research and make our policy events more diverse and gender-balanced. Our team will work with other think tanks and relevant groups, like the Brussels Binder, to implement these first CEPS “SDGs”.
This project falls within CEPS’ broader objective to look into gender and diversity issues, including from a research perspective. Other initiatives include:
- VIRAGE, a project funded by DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, which aims to study how industrial relations and social dialogue can shape progress towards the achievement of gender equality in Europe.
- EUSOCIALCIT, an EU-funded project looking to develop a resource-based, multi-level concept of social rights at EU, national and local levels.
- ASILE studies the interactions between emerging international protection systems and the United Nations Global Compact for Refugees (UN GCR). This project is committed to be ‘gender aware’ and ‘gender sensitive’ in all its key steps from research design to data gathering and analysis, as well as its dissemination.
