Call for Papers

ATGENDER Spring Conference
Conference *Bridging gender research and policy making : missing links, good
practices, future scenarios *(Vilnius, April 19-21, 2017) is out !

Organised by *ATGENDER, *The European Association for Gender Research,
Education and Documentation, with support from the European Institute for
Gender Equality (EIGE) and Vilnius University (VU), the 2017 edition of the
*AT**GENDER* Spring conference is dedicated to building dialogues between
gender researchers, activists, students, educators and policy makers.

The main goal of this conference is to address gaps between academic
research in gender studies and the practice of gender policy making and
implementation in light of current political and social issues in Europe.
The conference invites participants to consider how to make gender research
more accessible outside the academic community and how to make gender
policy better informed by recent scholarship. It also urges participants to
think about how to overcome the dualism of theory and practice in the quest
for future gender equality in Europe.

*AT**GENDER* particularly encourages contributions by policy makers,
information specialists, archivists, civil society activists and academics.
Graduate students are also invited to contribute to the conference with
academically informed and politically engaged papers.

We welcome different formats (such as papers, panels, roundtables and
workshops) around the following topics :

*1. Quantitative and Qualitative methods of gender analysis *(with a
special focus on : Intersecting inequalities ; Gender-based violence ; Gender
