MR-dagarna: Feminist strategies during militarization & a pandemic
The democratic civic space is shrinking all over the world. Laws are restricting NGO’s possibilities to work freely and activists are silenced, threatened, oreven murdered. The Covid-19 pandemic has given governments a pass to restrict the space even further with ’public health’ as justification. There is a great risk that this shrunken space will be ’the new normal’ without active resistance from civil society on a local, national, and international level. Armed conflict, nationalist movements, and inequality are other factors that affect democratic space.
We will discuss the situation for civil society after the pandemic, long term consequences, and feminist strategies to open the space.
