Transnational Feminist Dialogues on Gender, Conflicts and Social Justice: Resistance, Activist Practices and Social Movements

Convened by Junior Research Group “Food for Justice” (Freie Universität Berlin)

The panel discussion is part of the event series Transnational Feminist Dialogues on Gender, Conflicts and Social Justice and brings together speakers working on different regional contexts to discuss the contentious forms of challenging contemporary agrarian, environmental, and climate conflicts. The event is convened by the Junior Research Group “Food for Justice” (BMBF, FU Berlin), which  focusses on social mobilization targeted at injustices in the food system to establish a dialogue with researchers working on conflicts triggered by extractivism and anti-ecological authoritarianism.  Focusing on different levels of resistance, the aim is to jointly discuss the understanding of those practices that run between everyday resistance, and more organized forms of collective action, in which protesters gather in broader social or political movements to challenge authorities or hegemonic powers in national or transnational realms. In this event we want to revisit those questions that inspired the series to ask about the actors that engage in resisting agri-food, environmental, and climate conflicts and the strategies used by them, but also about the complexities and particularities of the resulting activist practices from a gender-based perspective in different contexts.
