Universal values, particular contexts, situated struggles.

A comparative study of feminist strategies and political discourses on gender equality and multiculturalism in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

This is a comparative and historical study around understandings of gender equality and multiculturalism in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The project combines analyses of feminism in relation to questions of gender equality and multiculturalism, with studies of political policies around social justice. Based on analyses of ethnographic material (interviews, fieldnotes, participant observation) and discourse- and textual analysis, this project aims to explore the multifaceted and contradictory relationship between feminism, gender equality and multiculturalism as it takes shape in women’s organizations and in political policies in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
