Europe - A Gender Equality Project?

Gender Politics in Europe

Europe continues to play an important role in the long quest for equal rights and emancipation. The politics of the European Union (EU) strongly influences advanced regulations in individual-member countries. However, a lot of progress at the EU-level is realized neither on a local nor on a regional level. In some instances, such progress is simply ignored. Can one succeed in further developing trendsetting, gender-political initatives in the EU? Or, will the alliance of conservative forces gain more weight in European politics.

The Gunda Werner Institute analyzes the politics of the European Union and its member countries from a gender-democratic and feminist perspective, and ultimately, devises emancipatory gender-political strategies.
