Ögrun andfemínískra hreyfinga við mannréttindi

Dr. Andrea Pető

(English below)

Andrea Pető, prófessor við Central European University, er áttundi og síðasti fyrirlesari fyrirlestraröð RIKK – Rannsóknastofnunar í jafnréttisfræðum og Jafnréttisskóla Háskóla Sameinuðu þjóðanna (UNU-GEST) á vormisseri 2018. Fyrirlestur hennar nefnist: „Ögrun andfemínískra hreyfinga við mannréttindi“ og verður fluttur í stofu 23, Veröld – Húsi Vigdísar, þriðjudaginn 8. maí frá kl. 12.00-13.00.

Í fyrirlestrinum kryfur Pető stöðu andfemínískra hreyfinga í Evrópu og metur áhrif gagnaðgerða framsækinna afla. Hún heldur því fram að andfemínískar hreyfingar séu nýtt afl í evrópskum stjórnmálum sem kalli á nýjar aðgerðir og viðbrögð. Ef framsækin stjórnmál gleyma uppruna sínum og gildum, í síkvikri grasrót, dugar ekki að notast við þær aðferðir sem hingað til hafa verið nýttar í jafnréttispólitík, til að koma í veg fyrir að andfemínistahreyfingar nái yfirhöndinni, þegar til lengri tíma er litið.

Fyrirlesturinn er á ensku og er öllum opinn.
