Breakfast seminar: A threat to academic freedom is a threat to women's rights

This seminar is organized by STK in collaboration with Kilden kjønnsforksning.no og FOKUS - Forum for Women and Development. 

In Hungary, the authorities have recently banned gender studies. There is now a growing concern for the violation of fields of study that challenge the ideology of right-wing populist governments. Globally, an increasing number of states attack democratic values such as freedom of expression and researchers’ possibility to do autonomous research. These regimes all want to restore conservative family ideologies, and consequently diminish women’s rights and the development towards gender equality.  

In this seminar, we invite scholars, civil society representatives and academic institutions to discuss these international challenges, as well as Norway’s role and responsibility as co-operating and funding stakeholders.
