This one day intensive PhD course focused on contemporary contestations around gender equality in Europe. Whilst being a core value and norm of many European countries and the European Union, gender equality has become hotly contested as evidenced in national and transnational anti-gender backlash in sexual and reproductive rights debates, the Istanbul Convention, and in political homophobia in countries like Poland.
