Workshop 10: Building alternatives to policy of austerity and current economic model in Europe from a feminist perspective

This workshop addressed the need for a new economic framework that centres wellbeing and redresses structural power imbalances, in line with feminist economic principles. While gender concerns are often touched on only peripherally in alternative economic models, this workshop will examine ways to move beyond the business-as-usual approach and build a feminist economic agenda.
