Section I: Contracting authority
Main address: www.eige.europa.eu
Section II: Object
Gender Inequalities in Unpaid Care Work and on the Labour Market in the EU
The main objective of this procedure is to select the best proposal for the study that will serve as a basis for EIGE’s report to the German Presidency of the Council of the EU in the second semester of 2020.
The study to be carried out under this contract shall focus on the implementation of three strategic objectives of the BPfA in area F ‘Women and the Economy’ namely ‘F1 relating to women’s economic rights and independence, F5 addressing occupational segregation and F6 relating to work-life balance’.
The overall objective of the study aims at deepening the understanding of the links between unequal sharing of caring between women and men in families and broader gender inequalities in the labour market.
The study shall be based on mixed-methods research, adopt an intersectional analysis and shall explore gender inequalities in unpaid care work and on the labour market in the EU. In particular, the research shall assess:
— how gender inequalities in unpaid care activities link with gender inequalities in pay/earnings,
— the national conditions leading to and enabling care work being externalized/outsourced and describe how paid care work is provided and compensated and whether it constitutes decent work,
— different arrangements in paid work and care work in partnership relations in private households (predominating in different countries), and
— the trends in the progress towards equal sharing of unpaid care activities in partnerships (‘earner-carer-model’).
