GGI's webinars

The GGI is now investing its efforts in the organization of webinars. These remote seminars bring together speakers and participants to reflect on current international issues from a gendered perspective. Choosing this format also means choosing to interact with our readership; a modality that is very important to us, since it contributes to making known a set of considerations specific to international relations, gender studies, and more broadly, to social and political sciences

Inviting recognized experts to speak and discuss these current issues allows us to address different dimensions of gender inequality, gender violence, and the multiple forms of discrimination and oppression they can take. The seminars represent privileged moments to better understand the scientific explanations, as well as to reflect on solutions and future perspectives collectively.

Upcoming editions

This webinar will focus on “The situation of the rights of LGBTI minorities in the European Union”. During this event our speakers will give an overview of the situation of LGBTI people in the European Union and the promises of the European Commission since the Conference on the Future of Europe.

Between legal and political expertise and the reality on the ground, this event is a real opportunity to learn more about the rights of LGBTI minorities and the citizens’ recommendations to adopt in order to defend the rights of the LGBTI community within the European Union.

See you on April 13th on Zoom at 7pm!

Previous editions

A look back at 25 years of activism, decisions and institutional processes. The 1995 Beijing conference marked the history of women’s rights.

Since then, what have been the concrete achievements? How has the cooperation between civil society actors, international solidarity organizations and institutions evolved? And what is the place given to gender within these organizations?

The expert participation of our speakers will help us to take a critical look at the place given to gender and equality over the past 25 years.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s contested presidency and in the face of the promising prospects that Joe Biden’s tenure offers for gender issues in American politics, we addressed the topic of the “Instrumentalization of gender in U.S. Politics” through this webinar.

Accompanied by two speakers specializing in gender issues, Michel Stambolis-Ruhstorfer (sociologist, lecturer in American studies and gender studies) and Caroline Ernesty (freelancer specializing in gender issues and reporter in the United States), we discussed U.S. politics,  LGBTQ and women’s rights , as well as the consequences of political measures on them.
