Gender Equality

The main topics family, working life, politics and policy form the framework of the institute’s research on gender equality and gender relations.

The ISF’s gender equality research is concerned with societal challenges in the interaction between family, the labour market, and policy. Gender equality research at the ISF has given particular importance to understanding and explaining gender differences in terms of participation in education and the labour market, wages, careers, and management, as well as investigating the relationship between work and family life. In our research we are concerned with how gender is intertwined with other inequality generators such as ethnic background, age, generation, and class.

The Institute was one of the first to research gender equality and gender relations. In recent years, CORE – Centre for Research on Gender Equality has played a key role in this field. In 2017, the Institute also established NORDICORE, a five-year Nordic Centre of Excellence for gender balance studies and gender equality in academia.
