The Network of Experts on Employment and Gender Equality Issues (EGGE) was one of two expert networks that advised the European Commission on gender equality issues. EGGE’s main focus was on analyzing gender equality aspects of the labour market. The network wrote policy-oriented reports and analyses to the Commission’s DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. In addition to 27 EU member states, the network included experts from Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway. EGGE’s work was coordinated by the Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini from Italy.
The role of Praxis was to represent Estonia as an expert on gender equality. This included writing thematic reports that were later used by the Commission to compare European countries. Praxis also analyzed the Estonian Action Plan for Growth and Jobs 2008-2011 from a gender mainstreaming standpoint.
In 2012, the network ceased work and was joined with EGGSI (Group of Experts on Gender Equality, Social Inclusion, Health Care and Long Term Care). EGGSI studies social inclusion, health and long term care from a gender equality point of view. The merger created a new gender equality network called ENEGE (European Network of Experts on Gender Equality).
