160x245mm pp.93 Yen6,400 2000
This book is the result of the cooperation on a European level between both academics and civil servants active in this policy field. It wants to contribute to a more effective equality oriented personnel policy which takes into account recent policy insights and developments regarding gender, equality and personnel policy. Theoretical understandings are presented, as well as concrete instruments and casestudies illustrating how governments in different countries (Belgium - on a federal and Flemish level -, the Netherlands, UK and Norway) are working towards an equality oriented personnel policy in practice. Although the book examines the specific situation of the public sector and gives examples of projects in government administrations, it is also of interest to other organizations.
