Politicizing Gender and Democracy in the Context of the Istanbul Convention


Date & Time: Wednesday, 27 October 2021, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm (GMT+8)

Language: English (with simultaneous Mandarin interpretation)

The book talk will be held via Zoom meeting.


This book examines opposition to the Council of Europe’s Istanbul Convention and its consequences for the politics of violence against women in four countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Krizsán and Roggeband discuss why and how successful anti-gender mobilizations managed to obstruct ratification of the Convention or push for withdrawal from it. They show how resistance to the Convention significantly redraws debates on violence against women and has consequences for policies, women’s rights advocacy, and gender-equal democracy.
