The Feminist Movements Revitalizing Democracy in Europe (FIERCE) project kicks-off!

(PRESS RELEASE) THESSALONIKI, 7-Sep-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — On the 1st of September 2022, the FIERCE project successfully kicked-off having a consortium full of enthusiastic partners already eager to collaborate and co-create. On that date the partners met online to prepare in view of the project’s official kick-off meeting scheduled to take place on the 27th and 28th of September in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The project’s main goal is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge and tools to revitalize alliance among feminist movement, civil society and political decision makers. FIERCE envisions to rekindle the movement-institution relationship by means of a multidimensional, bottom-up and impact-oriented approach. To that aim, the FIERCE project will rely on a systematic construction of eight relevant case studies and a comparative dimension-driven analysis of policy issues in five selected areas (labour market, health and reproductive rights, LGTBQ+ rights, migration, gender-based violence). The eight countries that constitute the project’s eight case studies (Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey) have been selected following criteria of geographical balance, diversity of political, cultural contexts and welfare systems.

FIERCE contributes to a wider understanding of feminist and anti-feminist/anti-gender movement activities and discourses, as well as their impact on policy outcomes. In addition, FIERCE promotes gender equality on a theoretical and practical level through policy recommendations, tools, and solutions that bring together civil society organisations and other stakeholders.

The project’s Consortium consists of 11 partners, among which there are 7 universities, 2 NGOs and 2 SMEs, all with multidisciplinary expertise in intersecting and complementary research areas. Geographically, the partners cover all the main regions of Europe, ensuring that the project outcomes will be adaptable across the Union.
