Author Alla Kirova
Abstract
The establishment of fair European research area with a view to gender equality is one of the main requirements of Europe 2020 Strategy. In that context the paper presents selected results of a study of the gender balance in the higher education and science in Bulgaria. Problems concerning the position of the country in the European map of gender equality in the two academic sectors and especially the level of gender segregation are treated. Three intrinsic problems are identified – horizontal segregation by fields of science, tendency towards men leaving the public research sector, and substantial vertical segregation by academic and leading positions.
