This event aims to reflect on some recent gains in advancing anti-racism and gender equality across the world. Panelists will also examine patterns, fears, or coordinated actions against racial justice and gender equality and explore possible responses to such rampant backlashes. Join us as we take a global perspective and also place the recent backlashes against anti-racism and gender equality in the broader history of oppression.
This webinar is organized by the Roma Program of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, the Romani Studies Program of the Central European University, and the Critical Romani Studies Department at Södertörn University.
The event marks the 51st anniversary of the First World Romani Congress when the Romani Day, flag, and anthem were adopted. Thus, while this day represents a significant moment in Roma history, we would like to take this opportunity to reflect on the recent global gains of anti-racist movements, counteract backlashes, and foster dialog and solidarity amongst historically oppressed peoples.
