RESISTIRE is a 30-month research project aiming at finding sustainable solutions to gendered inequalities and at strengthening societal resilience to outbreaks.
As part of its research activities, the project has analyzed the impact of social policies and initiatives of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly three years after the outbreak of COVID-19, the project takes a look at the impact that policies in response to the pandemic have had on inequalities, specifically those related to gender. Not only have these policies sharply increased existing inequalities related to work, care and health - which has had disastrous effects on people's well-being and safety - but they have also created new inequalities, such as in digitization, access to green spaces or health services. However, the crisis has also highlighted many Better Stories of inspiring political and social responses to these gendered impacts, striving to build back better by putting care, diversity and social well-being at the center of social change, and challenging gendered and intersectional power relations.
Throughout the conference, panel discussions will highlight three thematic areas:
- Gender-based violence in the pandemic
- Beyond Connectedness: Caring for an Inclusive Digital Transition.
- Bringing care back to healthcare
All policy makers, social innovators, researchers and people involved in civil society organizations are called upon to join this final conference to find out RESISTIREs policy recommendations, based on inspiring Better Stories, pilot projects for fairer and more inclusive crisis management, and hear from experts about their research or experience.
