Part of the Gender and Politics book series (GAP)


In February of 2011, the Quality in Gender+ Equality Policies project (QUING) held an international conference entitled “Advancing Gender Training in Theory and Practice” in Madrid. QUING features several projects designed to compare gender+ equality policies across Europe. The goal of the last phase of the QUING project OPERA was to improve gender equality policies and gender mainstreaming through the direct translation of knowledge to policymakers via training (QUING n.d.). The goals of translating knowledge directly to policymakers produced several meetings and eventually led to the conference in Madrid.
