Gender Backlash Project - Turkey

This research project was founded by the Institute of Development Studies and coordinated by Assoc. Prof. Çimen Günay Erkol, is part of a research consortium on countering gender backlash in different countries. The project team aims to analyze the emphasis by certain agents on family values as the primary institution in which women are to be empowered, which creates a liminal space that is closely related to the gender backlash discussions. The Turkish leg of the project is carried out at our university.
