Gender Dynamics

Gender, and the dynamics it creates and involves, impact our daily life and how we conceive society and carry out research. Gender equality forms a necessary basis for a peaceful and prosperous society, and for inclusive policy-making processes.

Gender issues are an area of great societal relevance involving multiple perspectives, as underlined by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UNESCO strategy 2022-2029 and the EU Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025, which follows a dual approach of gender mainstreaming and intersectionality, which must be integrated into all EU policies and EU funding programmes.

Within this framework, Gender Dynamics acts as a network of researchers and collaborators working on gender issues at Eurac Research, with the aim of exchanging expertise and ideas and proposing joint research projects and initiatives. The network also works with local and international actors.

The range of subjects that Gender Dynamics members are currently working on covers several interdisciplinary perspectives and societal challenges: inclusive and gender-responsive language, gender equality and non-discrimination at the level of both legal and socio-political movements, intersectionality, gender-based violence, gender and family or other forms of care, women's political participation, LGBTQIA+ rights, gender and radicalization, anti-gender backlashes, patriarchy and patriarchal society structures, masculinities, health and gender, including the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on gender concerns, gender and technology, and gendered aspects of climate change and mitigation.

Gender Dynamics also provides fresh and existing insights on gender issues to support social change towards equality and inclusion.

We pursue the following objectives:

  • Advancing research on gender-related issues in South Tyrol and beyond;
  • Increasing the visibility of local, national and international gender-related research and enhancing their dissemination throughout the region;
  • Counseling on gender dimension in research across disciplines at Eurac Research and at local, national and international levels;
  • Supporting local, national and international networks with existing scientific and public bodies who are dealing with gender-related and intersectional issues.
