This publication reviews the progress made towards the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, which was adopted at the World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995. The report is based on an analysis of responses received from 154 participating governments to a questionnaire. The book is divided into three sections. Part 1 gives background information on the Beijing Conference and an overview of the intergovernmental process since then. Part 2 analyses progress made on critical areas of concern highlighted at the conference. These include: poverty; education and training; health; violence against women; human rights; and the environment. It also considers the institutional arrangements adopted at international, national and regional level; and the bilateral and multilateral financial arrangements. Part 3 identifies some of the political, social, economic and cultural trends addressed in the Platform for Action which pose new challenges to its full implementation. These include: globalisation; migration; issues of identity; and the changing nature of conflict.

EIGE regularly produces reports reviewing different areas of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) or other EU policy priorities, as requested by the presidencies of the Council of the European Union. This factsheet is based on the report Beijing + 25: The fifth review of the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action in the EU Member States, prepared at the request of Finland’s Presidencyof the Council of the EU. Women’s economic empowerment has long been a feature of EU policy, but the shift in priorities in the aftermath of the economic crisis has left the employment policy largely gender blind. Thus the Europe 2020 strategy includes a target of having 75 % of the working age population in employment by 2020 but does not distinguish between women and men. While the overall EU employment rate is getting closer to this target (72.2 % in 2017), this masks a significant disparity between the employment rates of women (66.5 %) and men (78 %). A gender perspective in employment policy acknowledges that women undertake a disproportionate share of unpaid care work, which limits their participation in the labour market and the quality of their employment. The European Pillar of Social Rights was introduced in 2017 to ensure equal opportunities for women and men in areas such as equal conditions of work, career progression and equal pay. Following the principles of the Pillar, the 2019 Directive on worklife balance for parents and carers seeks to address the ‘care penalty’ and encourage men to take up more caregiving responsibilities. The 2014 Pay Transparency Recommendation provided guidance to Member States on how to tackle pay inequalities through greater transparency, although its implementation remains limited. A new EU action plan (2017- 2019) on tackling the gender pay gap calls on Member States to apply effective equal pay legislation.

After graduating from the Beijing Film Academy in 1982, directors like Chen Kaige and Zhang Yimou transformed Chinese cinema with Farewell My Concubine, Yellow Earth, Raise the Red Lantern, and other international successes. Memoirs from the Beijing Film Academy tells the riveting story of this class of 1982, China’s famous "Fifth Generation" of filmmakers. It is the first insider’s account of this renowned cohort to appear in English. Covering these directors’ formative experiences during China’s tumultuous Cultural Revolution and later at the Beijing Film Academy, Ni Zhen—who was both their screenwriter and teacher—provides unique insights into the origins of the Fifth Generation’s creativity. Drawing on his personal knowledge and interviews conducted especially for this volume, Ni Zhen demonstrates the diversity of the Fifth Generation. He comments on the breadth of styles and themes explored by its members and introduces a range of male and female directors, cinematographers, and production designers famous in China but less well-known internationally. The book contains vivid descriptions of the production processes of two pioneering films—One and Eight and Yellow Earth.

Beijing presents a clear and gathering threat to Washington - but not for the reasons you think. China's challenge to the West stems from its transformative brand of capitalism and an entirely different conception of the international community. Taking us on a whirlwind tour of China in the world - from dictators in Africa to oligarchs in Southeast Asia to South American strongmen - Halper demonstrates that China's illiberal vision is rapidly replacing that of the so-called Washington Consensus. Instead of promoting democracy through economic aid, as does the West, China offers no-strings-attached gifts and loans, a policy designed to build a new Beijing Consensus. The autonomy China offers, together with the appeal of its illiberal capitalism, have become the dual engines for the diffusion of power away from the West. The Beijing Consensus is the one book to read to understand this new Great Game in all its complexity.
