The EuroBroadmap EU FP-7 project is aimed at arriving at an evaluation of a shared and coherent vision of Europe's place in the world. In the following analysis we will be looking at the results of a student survey conducted in eighteen countries across four continents, and which represent a section of the research conducted for the project, from a gender perspective. We outline the main di erences that emerge in the answers given by both men and women. We argue that these di erences point to the existence of a gender hierarchy based on a patriarchal hegemonic structure. By comparing the results of the survey to the results of research conducted on migration at the Southern and Eastern borders of Europe, as well as an analysis of school textbooks, National visions and global trade ows, we single out particular aspects of gender in socio-relational contexts that emerge across most of the country case studies and attempt to provide, where possible, explanations for the exceptions. We further argue that the results collected and the existence of a gender hierarchy is re ective of a persistent structure of inequality that in some cases mirrors colonial structures of control, which are still being replicated today.
