The EPASI project seeks to examine educational policies designed to address social inequalities and the needs of disadvantaged groups. This symposium paper outlines initial findings in the EPASI Project (Educational Policies Addressing Social Inequalities in Europe) in relation to the issue of gender. Education is a critical component of the fundamental and universal rights of men, women and children, and consistently acknowledged as a powerful domain for self-advancement. Education policies have been considered part of a larger framework. We are searching for a methodology to analyse educational policies. We are searching for examples of gender responsive policy implementation that addresses inequalities resulting from socially and culturally constructed differences between men and women in society.
