BUDGET SUPPORT VS SOCIAL COHESION

 

Budget support is an important instrument of the European Union's global development policy for partner countries. It is strongly linked to supporting the achievement of results by government policies for improving the lives of people in areas such as equality, health, education, employment, justice, social protection, access to basic services and the management of public finances, among others.

COMPLEMENTARITY BETWEEN EUROPEAN AND LATIN AMERICAN REGIONAL COOPERATION PROGRAMMES

 

 

The EUROsociAL+, SOCIEUX+ and Social Cohesion Laboratory II programmes symbolise the coordination between stakeholders and mechanisms to reduce inequality. During the Exchange Days on Cooperation in Social Cohesion between the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean , held in Mexico City, the ongoing European-Latin American commitment to social cohesion became apparent, in the current context of the "graduation” of several middle-income Latin American countries and the design of a new  approach to cooperation between the two regions in order to address the global challenges of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development more efficiently. This joint activity, held at the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was coordinated by the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID) and the European Union Delegation to Mexico.

JUSTICE WITH A GENDER PERSPECTIVE IN CHILE

 

 

EUROsociAL has supported the Chilean Judiciary’s Secretariat for Equality, Gender and Non-Discrimination  to give the justice administration the right tools to ensure that the gender approach is present in judicial sentencing. The support path included a study visit to Spain (Provincial Court of Madrid, Supreme Court, General Council of the Judiciary), Germany (Constitutional Court, Federal Supreme Court) and European institutions in France (Council of Europe and European Court of Human Rights).

 

EUROSOCIAL+ IN “PLANETA FUTURO”:

WOMEN SUFFER TWICE AS MUCH FROM CORRUPTION IN LATIN AMERICA

 

 Article by EUROsociAL+ expert Ana Linda Solano, which has been published in the Planeta Futuro section of the digital version of the newspaper El País (Spain).

“We must reveal the different effects of corruption in order to illustrate a regional reality that needs to be dealt with. This is precisely the aim of an action by the European Union Cooperation Programme in Latin America, EUROsociAL+, which seeks to promote the application of the gender approach to anti-corruption strategies (link), in line with the conclusions of the recent 8th Summit of the Americas, in which it was agreed to "promote gender equity and equality and the empowerment of women as a transversal objective of our anti-corruption policies. To advance along this route it is necessary to overcome the idea that women are less corrupt than men for essentialist reasons. Communication, awareness-raising and education strategies should be developed that make visible the manifestations of corruption that impact women and girls. It is also necessary to generate data with a gender focus that allows the dimensioning of the problem”.

 

REVIEW OF THE BRASILIA RULES TO GUARANTEE EFFECTIVE ACCESS TO JUSTICE FOR PEOPLE IN VULNERABLE CONDITIONS

 

 

The 100 Brasilia Rules were approved at the 14th Ibero-American Judicial Summit, which took place in Brasilia in March 2008. Even at that time they had the technical support of EUROsociAL, which was then in its early stages. A decade later, the Follow-up Commission to the Brasilia Rules of the Ibero-American Judicial Summit and the EUROsociAL+ Programme (in its third stage) once again collaborated on preparing and publicising an annotated version of the Brasilia Rules, reviewing 73 of its 100 principles, which will serve as technical support to legal operators to ensure effective access to justice for people in vulnerable conditions.

 

AUDIOVISUAL SERIES: “EURO-LATIN AMERICAN DIALOGUE ON THE FIGHT AGAINST GENDER VIOLENCE”

 

Around one hundred participants from 23 countries (12 Latin American countries and 11 European Union countries) took part in a meeting at the Casa de América Latina in Paris which promoted a technical and political dialogue between Europe and Latin America in the search for joint solutions in the fight against gender violence in its different manifestations, from harassment to femicide, to continue improving public policy, social cohesion and citizen participation in Latin America. As a result, an audiovisual series was created to systematise this bi-regional dialogue.
