European Values in the Charter of Fundamental Rights, Workshop on Gender Equality, 9 – 11 September 2019
The Conference “European Values in the Charter of Fundamental Rights” was organized as part of the European research project NoVaMigra – Norms and Values in the European Migration and Refugee Crisis.
The Conference took place at the Faculty of Political Economic and Social Sciences of the University of Milan (7, via Conservatorio) from the morning of September 9th to the afternoon of September 10th and was articulated in six panels, which corresponded to the main Titles of the Charter: dignity, freedoms, equality, solidarity, citizens’ rights and justice. For each panel there was a keynote speaker, who presented her/his own perspective on how the values of the Charter should be understood in the framework of the European project, and a dicussant.
The keynote speaker was: Dignity: Roger Brownsword (King’s College London); Freedoms: Catherine Audard (London School of Economics); Equality: Gianfrancesco Zanetti (CRID, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia); Solidarity: Philippe Van Parijs (Université Catholique de Louvain); Citizen’s Rights: Justine Lacroix (Université libre de Bruxelles); Justice: Gianluigi Palombella (Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies – Pisa).
Following the Conference, in the morning of September 11th, a Workshop which discussed the forms that a gender perspective could take in a multidisciplinary research such as NoVaMigra was organized. It was opened by a lecture of Mieke Verloo (Radboud University).
