Assistant professor, School of Economics, Utrecht University

Chantal Remery is assistant professor at the Utrecht University School of Economics. She conducts research into labour market and organisational issues, in particular from a gender perspective. Her areas of expertise include diversity, flexibility, reconciliation issues, equal opportunities, and aging. She is currently involved in the (inter-university) research group Covid19 Gender (In) equality Survey Netherlands (COGIS-NL). This study began in April 2020 and examines differences in work, care and well-being between men and women in households with at least one child under 18 living at home and at least one working parent. Since June 2020, the study also examines men and women in families without children under the age of 18 living at home.

For many years Chantal has been a member of the European Network of Experts on Gender Equality and co-authored a number of studies for the European Commission on, amongst others, reconciliation policies, the gender pay gap, gender mainstreaming of employment policies, and (out-of-school) childcare policies. She also co-authored a study on the European Gender Equality index, which was principal input for the Gender Equality Index of EIGE. She is currently a member of the expertpanel for the European Platform for Investing in Children within the context of the European Alliance for Families.
