Abstract

The 315 billion Investment Plan for Europe proposed by European Commission President Juncker represents a good point of departure from the usual and exclusive focus on fiscal containment and public debt reduction. However, its almost exclusive focus on physical infrastructure spending and investment in male-dominated industries will further undermine progress towards gender equality, in terms of pay and conditions as well as employment opportunities for women.
