GADIP is such a meeting place!

In times of alternative facts and subjective interpretations of reality, it is of even more importance that we find meeting places where the academy and civil society can meet and exchange knowledge, so that we together can create better opportunities and living conditions for women and men - GADIP is such a meeting place!

We organise seminars, workshops and film screenings that highlight various current social issues with a gender perspective. Anyone interested in these questions is welcome to join GADIP and to participate in our activities, which are usually free of charge.

 

About us

Feminist grassroots perspectives on trade policy 

 

Despite a growing acceptance regarding the importance of incorporating women’s economic empowerment and gender into international trade policymaking, the perspectives of feminist women, men and other gender identities on current trade policy are rarely heard. This session, organized by WIDE+ Gender and Trade Working group, highlights the voices of feminist scholars and activists, linking the micro experiences at grassroots level with the overarching macro-economic developments that international trade policies are driving.

The Europe we want? Feminist approaches to gender, migration and democracy 

This WIDE publication discusses issues around gender and migration in Europe, with a special focus on challenges in Spain, Austria, Poland, Belgium and Sweden. It is the result of a two years project supported through the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, and it is meant to serve as a resource for adult educators and the interested public.

 

 

Ordförande

Edme Dominguez

Jag var med i att förvandla GADIP från ett projekt finansierade av SIDA till en ideal förening när finansieringen tog slut och det skulle läggas ner, för många år sen. Varför ville vi att GADIP skulle överleva? För att vi tyckte att det var en bra plattform för att ena krafter, akademiker och aktivister och för att ena kampen för jämställdhet i Sverige med den som pågår i resten av världen.

Ulla Björnberg

Mitt engagemang i Gadip beror på att jag vill stödja förbättringar för kvinnors villkor. Samverkan mellan forskning och aktivism både internationellt och nationellt har jag alltid känt mig lockad av.
