WORKSHOP - Gender and gender equality in ‘welfare solutions’ and ‘entrepreneurship and business’

Monday, April 16, 2018 to Tuesday, April 17, 2018

This call for papers is addressed to PhD students and scholars working with gender perspectives and gender equality issues in relation to Nordic welfare policies and practices, as well as in relation to Nordic entrepreneurship and business. 

Asia studies scholars – please forward to your colleagues who work on the Nordic countries!

The workshop is inspired by the cooperation agreement between the Nordic Council of Ministers and China. This agreement emphasizes Nordic regional (rather than bilateral) cooperation with the People’s Republic of China, and was formalized at a meeting between the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China, held in Beijing in May 2017. Five areas of cooperation were defined. One of these is ‘welfare solutions’, while another is ‘entrepreneurship and business’. 

Submission of abstracts:

Abstracts on any aspect of gender and/or gender equality in relation to contemporary Nordic welfare solutions and/or entrepreneurship and business are welcome. Papers will be selected so as to ensure as broad a range of different perspectives on Nordic policies and practices as possible.

Please submit 300 word abstracts to [email protected] together with your name, position, department and university.
Please also indicate if you would like to be considered for the grant from the Nordic Centre Fudan.
Submission date: Monday 19 February
