The aim of the present report is to identify and analyse initiatives carried out by civil society during the pandemic that proved effective in mitigating gender and other inequalities. Specifically, the analysis offers insights into practices and kinds of action that contribute to reversing the developments that deepen inequality. This is possible by learning from the strategies and promising practices that civil society organisations (CSOs) and vulnerable individuals have put in place to cope with the consequences of the pandemic, and how public authorities can support or hinder these efforts.
The empirical data for this analysis consists of, firstly, the mapping of 128 CSO initiatives representing promising practices of support provision to meet the needs of vulnerable people during the pandemic. Secondly, among the mapped initiatives, 31 were selected for further analysis through desk research and semi-structured interviews with representatives of these initiatives. The data were generated by 30 partners and national researchers representing each country considered by the project. The same interview script was used by all the researchers, and contained questions related to the development of the initiative, the actions taken, the attention to gender and diversity dimensions, the policy framework, etc.
