Feminist Perspectives on Responses to the Crises in Ecology and (Care) Economy

WIDE Switzerland is organizing this one day conference. The international agenda and national policy debates have been dominated by the discourses on sustainability as a response to the ongoing crises. But what exactly does sustainability encompass and what influence does it have on the global regimes? Who has the power to de/regulate and what kind of logic is hiding behind it? Can we speak of a sustainable development at all, when visions of statehood, democracy and our common future seem to disregard gender justice?

Is sustainability a viable ‘domain’ for gender justice? What do feminist perspectives on work and standard of living, on social security and justice disclose on the processes of development and sustainability? Can they influence these processes?

Experts at the WIDE conference analyse the responses to the economic and ecological crises and reflect on the social consequences. Researchers, activists and interested parties are welcome to participate in the discussions.
