The International Center for Research on Women Presents: 

Discussion with Carla Maenza on how gender is constructed and perceived in policy making, with a focus on the tensions inherent in gender mainstreaming within the European Union.

Carla's presentation will explore the presence of feminist tensions in policymaking and gender mainstreaming in the European Union. Gender mainstreaming has been introduced around the world, from the United Nations to Latin America, Africa and Asia, as an equality policy aimed at introducing a gender perspective in all areas of policy making. This presentation will show how liberal policies and an over reliance on quantitative objectives have impacted gender mainstreaming efforts within the EU.

During the panel discussion on December 10th, we will share the latest research, best practices, tools and lessons learned. ARTICLE 19 will also be sharing “The Anatomy of Technology-related Violence Against Women,” a mapping tool of online abuse, and illustrate its use for women journalists. ICRW and ARTICLE 19 will be joined by experts in tech, policy, activism, program implementation and the donor community.

After a series of presentations (see speakers below), we will break into specialty working groups (in-house guests only) to hone into specific approaches and solutions, with the aim of dismantling the silos between research, tech, funding, implementation and policymaking in order to catalyze a sustained effort to combat technology-facilitated GBV.
