Consejo para la Igualdad Social de Mujeres y Hombres (Nők és Férfiak
Társadalmi Egyenlősége Tanács) fue establecido con el auspicio del
Ministerio de Asuntos Sociales y Laborales. La creación de esta nueva
institución y la continuación de su trabajo tienen una importante
función ya que asegurar la igualdad entre mujeres y hombres es una de
las principales agendas políticas de la Unión Europea. Las políticas
sobre la igualdad de género obligan a los Estados Miembros a dar pasos
concretos para crear la igualdad de género entre las personas de toda
condición, incluyendo en las áreas de la educación, la salud, el
trabajo
y la seguridad social.

**Promoting Gender Equality in New Aid Modalities and Partnerships**
This discussion paper produced by the United Nations Development Fund
for Women (UNIFEM), identifies an initial set of considerations to
ensure that gender equality is central to the aid effectiveness agenda.
The paper argues that women will only benefit from the new aid
architecture if gender equality is recognised as a key component of
poverty reduction and national development, and if women are fully
represented in decision-making. The report is available on line at:
