Gender equality has been on the agenda of national policies of higher education within and outside the European Union (EU) for the last twenty years. In some European countries, this process was initiated early on and has brought about remarkable results, while in others progress has been slower. Different countries and institutions have focussed on different strategies for raising awareness about the discrimination of women and for increasing the number of women in aca- mia, particularly in leadership positions. Previous research on gender equality in higher education has produced many case studies about programmes at institutions of higher education in Europe and elsewhere. Different actors like the European Commission and - tional organisations have also furnished reports about national policies. Building on this material, it is now time to analyse under what conditions equality p- grammes are successful. For a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of and barriers to gender equality in higher education, we also need studies that focus on the development of gender equality policies in different countries, as well as on conditions of implementation, change of strategy, and the evaluation of - sults. Comparative studies would be another useful tool for understanding the development and success of gender equality programmes.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Work is certainly a recommended read for EDI scholars interested in both established and novel perspectives on the field. . . Practitioners, whether directly involved with diversity management or not, can also use this volume to gain significant insight into the variety of perspectives on diversity management and training. Florence Villesèche, Management This collection can serve as a mirror for all of us who spend much of our lives in work organizations. From diverse vantage points, the authors help us see and understand the dynamics through which workplaces are gendered to the advantage of some and the disadvantage of others. For those of us wanting to transform those dynamics and create organizational cultures characterized by fairness, support, and cooperation, this book is a must-read. Jay Coakley, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, US Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Work, edited by Mustafa F. Özbilgin is a fascinating and useful collection of articles that cover varied perspectives on this thriving topic. Theoretical issues and policy problems, equal opportunity and diversity management, sociological and psychological approaches, history and present management and trade union efforts, and much more are all covered. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of several articles on men, masculinities, equality and diversity, a refreshing recognition of the importance of men and masculinities in the success or failure of equality and diversity efforts. Although the collection covers the UK in the most detail, chapters on the US, Germany, South Africa, and Japan provide a multinational perspective. It s the kind of book I d like to have at hand when I m writing about organizations, gender, equality and diversity. Joan Acker, University of Oregon, US With over thirty chapters, this book offers a truly interdisciplinary collection of original contributions that are likely to influence theorization in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion at work. Many chapters in the book offer comparative perspectives through cross-national and multi-level analyses. The volume adopts a critical perspective as it focuses on relations of power in exploring equality, diversity and inclusion at work. Specifically, the authors examine areas such as cultural conflict, gender inequity and politics, work life balance, affirmative action, trade unions and diversity and diversity interventions and change. This timely book with chapters that are contributed by internationally eminent scholars will prove to be an invaluable resource for researchers, policy makers and students in this field.

Gender order is one domain in which claims to power are demarcated in societies based on a religious codex as well as in secular societies such as nation-states. Gender order especially becomes the area in which conflicts are carried out when a society experiences transition or clashes with another society. At a time when Israel and Palestine face an escalation of their conflict and Germany is undergoing profound changes, renowned scholars discuss the implications on the gender order from their individual vantage points. The transdisciplinary articles focus on Gender in the context of Knowledge, Arts and Representation, Memory and Scripture, Political Transition, and Life Sciences. Ulrike Auga is assistant professor at Humboldt University, Berlin (Germany). Christina von Braun is the head of the Chair for Cultural History and Gender at Humboldt University, Berlin.

The different research fields – gerontology, gender and health – have generated different views, knowledge and foci on ageing, health and gender. It is now necessary to integrate these aspects into research, policy and practice. The objective of this book is to provide an overview of gender, health and ageing. Important theoretical concepts, such as life course and "Lebenslagen" in old age, or differences in men's health, are introduced. It is increasingly important to build a European basis of knowledge, to conduct discussions on European research findings, and to develop European research frameworks. In this volume, central theoretical debates on gender impacts on life course and old-age health, and vital issues of health research in the context of gender and old age are introduced. Specific aspects, such as the impact of gender and age on cardiovascular health, elder abuse and mental health, or care between gender relations, gender roles and gender constructs, are pointed out. Special attention is given to the impact of social, political and economic change in different New EU Member States, like Hungary, Poland and Slovenia.
