Joke Swiebel comments on Alison Woodward’s essay ‘Travels, triangles and transformations’. The demise of European equality policy, she argues, might first and foremost be caused by the inability or the unwillingness of key players to play by the rules of the Union. Commissioners espousing issues on terrains where the European Union has no jurisdiction waste precious time and goodwill. The European Women’s Lobby, in her view, lacks a professional attitude, spends too much time in internal squabbles, and does not always adequately represent European women’s movements. Organisations operating with more knowhow of European law now have more success in the corridors of power in Bruxelles.
