The new report EU Donors under Women’s Watch published by WIDE checks up on gender equality and women’s rights in the aid effectiveness agenda of EU Member States.

This study is an attempt by WIDE to take stock of the current level of implementation of the principles of ownership and mutual accountability set out in the Paris Declaration and Accra Agenda for Action.
