Gender has traditionally proven to be a 'blind spot' for new institutionalists. This book bring gender to the fore as a critical aspect of institutions and opens up new avenues to interrogate the dynamics of power and change. Casting its empirical lens on the EU, where institutional efforts to realize gender equality are quite pronounced, the book interrogates attempts to bring about more 'gender just' polities - supranationally, nationally, and more locally. The book takes a 'best case' scenario - with explicit transformative aims to the social (gendered) order - in order to illuminate how institutions and their gendering, help and hinder institutional change. In doing so, it aims to: 1) consolidate and expand the theoretical 'toolkit' in terms of synergies between feminism and new institutionalism's various strands; and 2) bring it to bear on the trajectory of Europe's gender equality agenda towards better understanding the institutional and institutionalized challenges to redressing gender inequalities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume makes a significant contribution to the development of two important areas of scholarship. It refines our gendered institutional analyses of the European Union and its equality policies. It also explores the relationship between different institutional approaches and feminist institutionalism. Finally this clear and comprehensive collection ranges over key policy areas and institutions providing us with useful new data.--Georgina Waylen, Professor of Politics, University of Manchester
Towards Gendering Institutionalism is notable for its theoretical richness and intellectual rigor. It affords fresh insights into obstacles facing gender mainstreaming in the EU, as its nine case studies grapple with the ways gender is entangled with institutions. The chapters engage a wide range of pressing policy areas including employment, climate change, supranational governance, immigration and asylum, economic crisis, and supra-national governance. This book is a must-read for scholars interested in the relationships between institutions and gender inequality and the future of gender mainstreaming in the EU.--Erin C. Cassese, Associate Professor of Political Science, West Virginia University
Towards Gendering Institutionalism will form a central point in the important Comparative Feminist Institutionalism project and literature. The collection focuses upon the crucial question of political will to support gender equality in the EU and its constituent states. Case studies cover many issues of contemporary relevance, including gender mainstreaming, climate change, immigration and asylum and economic governance.--Melissa Haussman, Professor of Political Science, Carleton University
This collection is a new milestone in the engagement of feminist scholarship with the new institutionalism in political science. The contributions raise important questions about the way forward: should efforts concentrate on gendering existing approaches to the study of institutions or can there be, should there be, a feminist institutionalism.--Matthijs Bogaards, Visiting Professor, Department of Political Science, Central European University
