Abstract

The chapters in this book are based on papers which were originally presented at a symposium on Gender and Well-Being at the university of Modena in italy in 2006. The symposium formed part of a series of meetings funded by the european Science Foundation under action 34 of CoST. CoST is an intergovernmental framework which is designed to promote international collaboration across europe in areas of scientific and technical research. In 2006, 34 countries were directly affiliated to COST and 23 countries included participating institutions. There was also one country, israel, which enjoyed the designation of a ‘cooperating state’.
