“Minerva” Project on Gender, Equality and Diversity

Minerva is the Roman Goddess of wisdom and justice. In this spirit, the FEPS Minerva project endeavours to deepen our knowledge of gender issues in the socio-economic domain through a multi-disciplinary and progressive approach.

A gender perspective cuts through all the most pressing issues that the EU faces today and in the foreseeable future, and a progressive approach to virtually all European policies requires taking the gender dimension into consideration.

Such an endeavour is especially timely for two reasons. On the one hand, the position and role of women have considerably changed - and continue to do so - in ways that require much more investigation. On the other hand, recent developments offer invaluable opportunities for radical change, including the potential to advance equality for women and men.

For these reasons, FEPS and the Minerva Laboratory on Diversity and Gender Inequality based in Sapienza University of Rome join forces to foster scientific research, facilitate publications and organise events, with the aim of contributing to progressive and feminist debates.
