Join a Working Group

WIDE+ is inviting activists, researchers, students, NGOs, experts, volunteers, and others to one of the thematic Working Groups (WGs) to join the work carried out by WIDE+ individual members, members associations and others.

You do not need to bbe a member to take part in one of our Working Groups

You can currently join the following Working Groups:

  • Trade and Gender. This thematic WG monitors EU trade policy from a feminist perspective, develops public positions and analysis on EU trade and gender issues.
  • Migration and Gender. This WG is implements a project that promotes migrant feminist movement building throughout Europe, and it engages in collective actions to promote the rights of migrant women and girls.
  • Feminist Movement Building. This WG develops the overall strategy for WIDE+’s feminist movement building activities, including its 2021 Feminist European Forum and its innovative activities. It discusses the latest developments across feminist movements and organized actions in Europe, in order to sharpen our efforts to address the fragmentation of feminism.
  • Communication. This working group works to help support WIDE+’s internal and external communication.

New Working Groups can be formed. For further information, please write to

It is up to the interests of WG members to shape the agenda of the Group. WIDE+ Caucus and the board offer support and coordinate the work of WGs with the overall strategic direction of WIDE+.

Most communication of the groups takes place online, through skype, email or phone. WIDE+ is raising a budget to enable WG members to come to or set up face-to-face meetings.

Working Groups are for active WIDE+ members and non-members. At a minimum, a member of the group can expect an online meeting once every couple of months.

  1. Very good to get to know one feminist association that seems to be so active. I am a Brazilian researcher and feminist beginning my PhD in Berlin with the focus on women’s access to natural resources and would like to know how to participate in the working groups.
