Title: Study on the functioning of judicial systems in the EU Member States : Facts and figures from the CEPEJ questionnaires
2010 - 2012 - 2013
Abstract
The European Commission has requested the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ), Council of Europeto conduct a study aimed at collecting and providing data on the functioning of judicial systems in the EU member states. This study is based on the facts and figures collected, processed and analyzed by the CEPEJ according to its own methodology and it aims at providing objective, reliable and comparable information to be used by the European Commission in the “EU justice Scoreboard”. The methodology used for this report is fully based on the methodology used by the CEPEJ for its biennial evaluation cycles, using its "Scheme for evaluating judicial systems" to be filled by the CEPEJ’s national correspondents (often established within the ministries of justice), whose responses are statistically processed analyzed and validated by the evaluation working group (GT-EVAL) of the CEPEJ. Following the technical specifications provided by the European Commission, the study is structured in two main parts: the first part examines the judicial systems in the European Union member States providing data tables per indicator for the Member States, and the second part contains country fiches.

Title: Parents at work : Men and women participating in the labour force
Abstract
In this statistical paper, we focus on the relationship between parenthood and employment. We look into various related aspects and for each of those aspects we contrast men and women to investigate gender differences. The main aspects analysed include: employment rate differences between parents and non-parents; working hours among parents and non-parents; gender inequalities with regard to work interruption and parental leave; and attitudes towards parental involvement in work and care. This short statistical report is part of a series of reports on gender equality in the work force and reconciliation of work, family and private life. These reports have been commissioned by the Justice Directorate General of the European Commission. The study was jointly undertaken by RAND Europe and the University of Groningen. These reports should be of relevance to policy makers and academics with an interest in improving gender equality in the work force and improving the compatibility of having a career in combination with a family and private life.

Title: Family-related working schedule flexibility across Europe
Abstract
Working time flexibility is a potentially important lever to foster the reconciliation of work, family, and private life. Giving workers greater autonomy and more control over their working times could empower them to better balance their work and non-work demands. This could then in turn lead to less work-family conflict, greater female labour force participation, higher fertility and greater gender equality on the labour market. In this report, we draw on two indicators, namely whether workers report 1) the possibility of varying the start and/or end of working day for family reasons (by at least one hour), and 2) the possibility of organising working time in order to take whole days off for family reasons (without using holidays). Our findings show that there is considerable cross-national variation in the reported availability of family-related working schedule flexibility that may be explained by economic factors and the workers’ age. The presence of young children in the household had hardly any effect on the availability of work schedule flexibility. These findings suggest a mismatch between the need for and the availability of flexible working times. This short statistical report is part of a series of reports on gender equality in the work force and reconciliation of work, family and private life. These reports have been commissioned by the Justice Directorate General of the European Commission. The study was jointly undertaken by RAND Europe and the University of Groningen. These reports should be of interest to policy makers and academics with an interest in improving gender equality in the work force and improving the compatibility of having a career in combination with a family and private life.

Title: Gender equality in the workforce : Reconciling work, private and family life in Europe ; Final Report
Abstract
This report summarises and synthesises the findings of a research project entitled ‘Reconciling work, private and family life: production of statistical reports’, which consisted of six related Short Statistical Reports (SSRs). The SSRs examined the topics of the Barcelona childcare targets (SSR1); labour force participation rates of men, women and parents (SSR2); balancing work and family for single parents (SSR3); gender inequalities in the transition from school to work (SSR4); share of earnings and domestic work within couples (SSR5); and access to family-friendly working schedules (SSR6). This research was commissioned by the European Commission Directorate General for Justice and Fundamental Rights. It was undertaken by RAND Europe and researchers at the Department of Sociology at the University of Groningen. RAND Europe is an independent not-for-profit policy research organisation that aims to improve policy and decision-making in the public interest, through research and analysis. RAND Europe’s clients include European governments, institutions, NGOs and firms with a need for rigorous, independent, multidisciplinary analysis. The research group led by Professor Melinda Mills at the Department of Sociology, University of Groningen has a strong record of high quality scientific research in the area of cross-national comparative research, gender equality, work-family reconciliation and advanced statistical analysis with large-scale data. This report has been peer-reviewed in accordance with RAND’s quality assurance standards. [Author vide copyright]

Title: ESBG : Study on the feasibility of the creation of a European System of Border Guards to control the external borders of
the Union ; Final report
Abstract
The final report presents the results of the study on the feasibility of the creation of a European System of Border Guards to control the external borders of the Union carried out by Unisys for the Directorate General Home Affairs of the European Commission. The purpose of the study was to identify three models of what a European System of Border Guards could be composed of, when assessing the expert views in EU Member States, Schengen Associated Member States and at the EU level. After a thorough evaluation of the existing challenges and future opportunities, different options were proposed for improved cooperation at the external borders of the EU, including the increased role of the Frontex Agency.

Abstract
This evaluation studies EU strategies and interventions in support to the transport sector in Africa during the period 2005-2013 taking into account EU’s legal instruments and official communications, international agreements, regional and national cooperation frameworks, other official commitments and institutional changes in the EU. All modes of transport sector support are considered including provision, operation, management and maintenance of transport infrastructure, institutional strengthening, capacity development and regulatory activities. The main objectives of the evaluation are to provide an overall independent assessment of EU’s past and current support and to identify key lessons learned in order to improve current and future EU strategies, programmes and actions of the EU external cooperation services.[Author vide copyright]

Abstract
A team of eight experts has conducted an independent evaluation of eleven years (2004-2014) of implementation of the EU Action Plan on Forest Law Enforcement Governance andTrade (FLEGT), commissionedby the European Commission through the European Forest Institute.The Evaluation Report comprises two volumes: Volume 1, the Main Report, presents the evaluation approach and methodology, gives an overview of the Action Plan, its genesis, objectives and structure, and documents the state of play of implementation in the seven Action Areas, against initial expectations. It then answers the ten evaluation questions around which the evaluation has been structured, which relate to the five OECD/DAC evaluation criteria (relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, sustainability) and two criteria that apply to EC policies (coherence/ complementarity and Community value added).Volume 2 contains all supporting documentation, in particular Survey results and (24) Aide-memoires on FLEGT in EU Member States, VPA countries and other timber producer and consumer countries. It also presents a detailed report on VPAs, covering two key areas of the Action Plan in more detail: (1) Support to timber-producing countries and (2) Trade in timber.The report draws lessons and conclusions and presents ten key messages and detailed corresponding recommendations to guide future EU efforts on FLEGT and, more broadly, on reversing the loss of forest cover and promoting sustainable management of forest resources.[Author vide copyright]

Based on this assessment, it provides recommendations to improve the future cooperation of the European Union (EU) with this region. The evaluation examines how regional cooperation of the EU has helped to advance the integration process in Central America between 2007 and 2013. Geographically, it therefore covers the countries that are members of the Central American Integration System, also known as SICA. Bi-lateral cooperation was only considered, insofar as it was meant to complement the regional cooperation of the EU. Furthermore, the evaluation did neither assess the trade policy of the European Union, nor the overall political relations and agreements between the regions, such as the Association Agreement. It only examined the complementarity and coherence of these different areas of EU external relations.[Author vide copyright]
