About the project
The research field spans issues relating to democracy and participation; majority/minority relations;
inclusion and exclusion; women's movement and gender equality; feminism and multiculturalism.
The research undertaken by members of this group is informed by matters relating to differing perceptions
of globalization and transnational mobilization. These give rise to a range of possible research questions,
What are the likely effects of globalization for the social and political representation and participation of ethnic and racialised minorities?
What implications does transnationality have for mobilizing and organizing women’s movements?
How does globalization influence discourses on gender equality, participation and visions of a gender fair society?
How is migration related to women’s movements’ claims and political impact, and for cooperation and conflicts between various groups of women?
