CESI is partner organization on the project Equal rights – Equal Pay – Equal Pensions, which is being implemented by the Ombudsperson for Gender Equality as the holder of the project, in the partnership with Institute for Social Research in Zagreb, Retired Persons' Trade Union of Croatia and Institute for the Equality of Women and Men (Belgium). Supporting state bodies: Ministry of Labour and Pension System, Ministry of Science and Education, Ministry of Public Administration and Croatian Bureau of Statistics.
Project deals with the nearly invisible topic of gender pay and pension inequalities, resulting in social and economic insecurity of women.
The project is aimed at ensuring standards, measures and actions that will contribute to raising awareness about the problem of pay and pension gaps between men and women with a view to reducing the risk of poverty for women.Target groups are representatives of competent authorities, public and private companies, trade unions and high school students at the national and local levels. The project will provide us with new knowledge that will enable a better understanding of the causes and consequences of the pay and pension gaps. We will be able to create an educational program, draw up a national legislative framework and organize national campaigns with a view to raising awareness about this problem.
