Gender equality is explicitly mentioned in 10 of the 56 articles of the 1999 regulation, which clearly embraces the dual strategy of combining gender mainstreaming with speciﬁc actions on equal opportunities. Pollack and Hafner-Burton note that the acceptance of the concept of gender mainstreaming in the Structural Funds context was achieved by the strategic framing 16 Gender and the Open Method of Coordination of mainstreaming as a question of economic efﬁciency; that is, by suggesting that the Structural Funds would fail in their task of reducing long-term economic and social disparities between the European regions if structural inequalities between men and women were not addressed (Pollack and Hafner-Burton 2000: 441).
It can be seen that the task of this volume, to examine the contribution which OMC might make to the furtherance of gender equality policy, presents considerable challenges for researchers. OMC offers considerable potential, as well as raising a host of concerns from a wide range of perspectives: these included issues about effectiveness, legitimacy and good governance. In Chapter 10, Beveridge and Velluti return to these themes to draw together some of the evidence which emerges from the intervening chapters, and to consider what light, if any, they shed on the many questions raised here.
This analysis is carried through into the 1999 revisions, and formed the starting point for evaluation of progress under the new regulation: “until now, the Funds have mainly supported speciﬁc measures for women or pilot projects. ” (Commission 2002: 3) Braithwaite draws attention to activities organized by the Commission to support the introduction of a gender mainstreaming approach to the Structural Funds. European conferences in 1996 and 1998 sought to disseminate this approach to ofﬁcials within Member States carrying responsibilities for equal opportunities: this in turn may have served to empower these people within their own policymaking circles.
