Beyond gender quota
Beyond gender quota


Gender quota have been introduced in politics in many European countries. But are quota sufficient to create gender equality? The political agenda, communication and staff are not aligned with a broad swathe of women and their ideological and intersectional diversity. This leads to a lack of trust and legitimacy, and unstable relationships between groups of women and their political institutions and politicians. In times of crisis, the informal social relationships of white men continue to have the upper hand.

A conversation with Karen Celis (RHEA, VUB) & Sarah Childs (Birkbeck, University of London), moderated by journalist and author Meredith Greer.
With video statements by Johanna Kantola (Tampere University in Finland) & Elin Bjarnegard (Uppsala University).
