    Abstract

    The paper seeks to bridge the existing gap between three distinct strands of literature: scholarship on EU enlargement; studies of social policy in the European Union; and feminist theorising on equality between men and women. It explores the impact of the EU’s conditionality on policies, legislation and institutions on gender equality in Bulgaria and Romania between 1990 and 2007 from a feminist perspective, uncovering the multifaceted process whereby Europeanisation and domestic determinants of change interact with each other in the formation and implementation of a new gender equality agenda.
