The project is part of CORE – Centre for Research on Gender Equality.

Central questions answered in the project are:

  • What does research show about the effects of various legal requirements and measures that have been implemented to achieve gender balance on boards and at management level?
  • Which legal requirements and measures have had the intended effect, and why? And which have not had the intended effect, and why?
  • What does research show about what creates gender balance, and what barriers exist?
  • What does research show about recruitment to boards and company management? Who is recruited, and why?

The project describes existing research that can shed light on these questions.
