Feminist institutional responses to anti-gender and anti-democratic forces 

Led by: Emanuela Lombardo (together with Johanna Kantola) 

What are the feminist institutional responses to democratic challenges and anti-gender forces across Europe, and how do they function?

We will collect and analyze data on feminist institutional responses to anti-gender campaigns, and on feminist experiences with democracy at various levels in Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, the UK, and at the EU level.

We will set up Feminist Democracy Labs with feminist institutional actors across Europe to translate the findings into institutional politics across Europe that better respond to anti-gender and anti-democratic forces and can create more feminist democracies in Europe.
