Research project The aim of our research is to develop the field of critical studies on gender equality, especially in terms of feminist theorising politics and the political, including the relations between politics and practice.
As our starting-point we relate politics to three other central concepts; moralism, market and emancipation. These three versions of politics are to be elaborated both as theoretical/analytical tools and as ways of finding empirical openings to how politics could and should be studied. In particular we intend to analyse how market oriented solutions as well as moralism can be understood as simultaneous tendencies of processes of politicising and depoliticising.
