The EUGENDERING project aims to create a pluridisciplinary platform allowing researchers, students, policymakers, civil society, and the larger public to better understand the challenges linked to the establishment of a Union of gender equality, non-discrimination and diversity. It focuses on how the EU tackles these challenges, and how it could better tackle them.

The EU Gendering team consists of senior and junior researchers, an executive officer, and valuable partnership with Gender5+ as a member of the board and an active contributor. Sophie Jacquot currently Professor of Political Science at USL-B is the Chair Holder and main researcher.

The objectives of the Chair are:
– to build on the flourishing, dynamic and innovative scholarship which is currently developing in the field of gender and the EU and to close the gap between the analytical dynamism of this field and its under-representation in students’ training and curricula;
– to address the democratic challenge of rising gender+ inequalities in a context where the COVID-19 crisis has dramatically increased these inequalities;
– to raise the political question of the polarisation of gender+ equality issues and the impact of illiberal attacks on gender+ equality policies at the EU level.

The EUGENDERING project wishes to act as an instrument to build bridges between gender and the EU scholarship and mainstream EU studies teaching, as well as between gender and the EU academic world and society. It aims at strengthening the links between EU and gender studies thanks to, on the one hand, the integration of gender in EU studies teaching and research and, on the other hand, to the integration of an EU dimension in gender studies.
