The two-day international conference, Movements, borders, rights? Feminist perspectives on global issues in Europe, will be held on 24 – 25 October, 2016 at Chant D’Oiseau in Brussels, Belgium. Organised by the European Women’s Lobby (EWL) and Women In Development Europe+ (WIDE+), the conference will provide a space for civil society, women’s rights experts, activists and policy makers to deepen and broaden their understanding of the current situation in Europe from a feminist perspective in an international exchange with women’s human rights activists from the Global South who have long been dealing with similar challenges.
The conference hopes to start a process of building momentum toward constructive criticism and joint political action beyond the conference, through encouraging constituencies and potential allies to take on board feminist perspectives in their future activities and agendas.
