A Feminist Perspective on Financing Militarization

There is a need to reflect on military spending from a feminist political economy perspective. With this online event, we will look at trends among European governments to deliver weapons to Ukraine and elsewhere as well as increase their defense budget.
  • Heidi Meinzolt will reflect on: 'What are the impacts of having increased military budget spending on the available budget for social welfare, environmental sustainability and on gender equality from a cross-dimensional feminist perspective?'.
  • Anne-Floor Dekker will answer: 'What are the impacts of an arms race (not only regarding Ukraine) on women’s rights?'.
  • Annemarie Sancar will focus on: What are the unintended and not considered impacts including harmful consequences of military budgets, and what are the democratic possibilities in western States to control and regulate money flows?'.

Practicalities: 7-8.30 PM (CEST) Monday 5 September 2022

2. How do women’s/feminist agendas get affected in Russia and in Ukraine and other countries in the region?

5. Sanctions vs Russia and its implications in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
