Sustainable Northern Communities: Integrating smart systems, structures and change


Project description

Gendering Safety group focuses on perspectives of social sustainability through: 1) Violence, Conflicts and empowered resolutions, and 2) Transnationalism, border crossing and agency. The focus areas address 1) the quality of interaction in interpersonal relations, prerequisites to non-violence, safety, participation and equality; and 2) how, in historical and contemporary contexts, forced transfers and voluntary movements affect identity, belonging and otherness in relation to the well-being and sustainability of communities. Gendering Safety group springs from the long-term gender research at Oulu University.
