Kommentar: Claudia Globisch, Institut für Soziologie
Moderation: Max Preglau, Institut für Soziologie

The talk is analysing the state of anti-gender movements in Europe, assessing the impacts of counter strategies by progressive actors. It argues that anti-gender movements are a new phenomenon in European politics which require new methods to study and different counter strategies from progressive forces.
