FIERCE sets out to study and revitalise the alliances between the feminist movement, civil society and political decision makers by means of a multidimensional, bottom-up and impact-oriented approach.

The project will provide an in-depth understanding of feminist and antifeminist / anti-gender movements, activities and discourses, and their impact on the institutional arena and on policy outcomes, focusing on the period between 2010-2021.  It focusses on the systematic construction of eight national case studies including Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey. It will pursue a comprehensive and cross-cutting comparative analysis based on five policy areas:

Labour market, Health & Reproductive rights, Migration, Gender-based violence, LGBTQ+ rights
