The EUROsociAL+ Programme accompanies Argentina in several reforms of key public policies to improve social cohesion. It coordinates its action with the Argentine institutions through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Religion’s General Directorate of International Cooperation and the European Union’s Delegation in the country.
It participates in the EUROsociAL+ Programme, in its three activity areas, to acquire the best practices of its Latin American and European peers in the:
- Social Policies Area: with lines of action on social inclusion and the fight against poverty; active employment policies and policies for young adults, adolescents and children, through actions aimed at improving the poverty situation of the young with policies that promote employment and training.
- Democratic Governance policies area: with three lines of action. With access to justice we are contributing towards the strengthening of institutions in order to improve the treatment of women who have been victims of violence and of LGTBI groups. With public finances the national budget is being strengthened, including with regard to a gender perspective. Good governance supports the transparency of public services and access to information.
- Gender Equality policies area: we work with lines of action regarding violence; sexual and reproductive health; and masculinities, contributing to the advances recorded in Argentina concerning public policies to reduce gender-based violence. Supplementing this, with the line of transversality, budgets and statistics we support the capacities to statistically visualise access to justice for women who are victims of violence.
Argentina has also joined the regional initiatives that drive the programme in terms of transparency, gender and effective access to justice. It stands out for sharing with other countries some of its relevant expertise, such as: its comprehensive plan for the promotion of the accessibility of girls and adolescents to science and technology training, observatories of gender-based violence, definition of indicators in the national survey on gender-based violence, mainstreaming the gender approach in all policies aimed at children and adolescents.
