About the course

This course is based on feminist legal studies on Nordic contexts. The tension between the images of the Nordic countries as gender equal states and the realities of gender inequalities in law and society is highlighted. Themes such as welfare, human rights, violence and abuse are studied from several critical perspectives. New approaches in gender studies influenced by the transformation of the Nordic model, such as Europeanization, globalization, human rights and new governance, will also be tackled.
