This chapter provides an institutional analysis of the European Union. It maps out potential sites of advocacy and identifies important actors within and outside of the European Union that pertain to the issue of violence against women and gender equality more broadly. It addresses the institutional context of advocacy within the complex and evolving system of multilevel governance that is the EU. It discusses the role of treaties in defining and redefining the policy process and in shaping political opportunity structures. It provides an overview of the EU institutions and their general favorability and openness to women’s rights advocacy. It also addresses the role of particular nonstate actors, including umbrella organizations and various experts and practitioners.

Keywords:   European Union, institutional context, multilevel governance, women’s rights advocacy, political opportunity structure
