Alternative Concepts, Dialogue and Change

Our work in this field is based on two pillars. We establish and support creative social spaces in which left progressive ideas and concepts can be discussed, developed and implemented. We are also engaged in enabling and strengthening gender equality. Together with our partners in South Asia, we organise workshops, seminars and academic summer schools.

Gender-justice has cross-sectoral dimensions. The ability to bring about lasting behavioral change is located in the empowerment of women, girls, men, boys, trans persons and others with accurate information, inclusive platforms and affirmative choices.

Neha Naqvi - Project Manager

Social justice and solidarity represent profound principles of our organisation and it is therefore from importance to engage in the aspect of gender justice as a relevant topic to societies worldwide. Gender justice is required to ensure greater freedom to all humans and increase their overall wellbeing. To transform gender power relations and norms, it is essential to empower every individual regardless of gender identification and sexual orientation.
