RT074 - Can global norms of gender equality create social justice?
Convened by Lars Engberg-Pedersen, Adam Fejerskov and Signe Cold-Ravnkilde (all from Danish Institute for International Studies, Denmark)
One of the most profound and omnipresent inequalities relate to gender. The struggle for gender equality has a long history, and significant efforts to establish globally accepted norms on gender equality seek to pressure states to address marginalisation and create social justice. But how do global norms emerge, which actors are influential, what broader contexts frame the norms, and how do global and local processes of norm engagement interact. The roundtable explores these questions on the basis of Rethinking gender equality in global governance: The delusion of norm diffusion, Palgrave, 2020.
