Mapping of Knowledge Centres for Gender Equality in Research in Europe
More awareness of the significance of research dissemination within the fields of gender equality, as well as gender perspectives in research, is needed. This is particularly important in the current situation in Europe, in which academic freedom is under pressure. Gender research is particularly threatened, together with other research areas that does not harmonise with conservative and right-wing populist ideologies. A response to these anti-liberal forces and new conservative ideas of gender, is in our opinion more collaboration, more research and more dissemination and outreach.
