Welcome to the RESISTIRÉ project
Reducing gendered inequalities caused by the COVID-19 pandemic
RESISTIRÉ (RESpondIng to outbreakS through co-creaTIve inclusive equality stRatEgies) is gathering ten European partners and a wider network of researchers to analyse the impact of COVID-19 policies on gendered inequalities.
Every six months until March 2023, the project will publish up-to-date research reports, policy recommendations, and innovative pilot actions to foster a fairer social recovery.
We interviewed Sofia Strid, Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies at Örebro University and scientific coordinator of RESISTIRÉ, to learn why it is important to focus specifically on gendered inequalities caused by COVID-19 policies.
History tells us that pandemics are not good for equality. While the COVID-19 crisis is exposing and exacerbating inequalities at the global level, early evidence highlights how sex and gender are influencing both the outcomes of the pandemic and its negative impact on inequalities.
To what extent have COVID-19 policies impacted gendered inequalities in Europe? How have women, vulnerable groups, and society in general responded to these inequalities? The first phase of the RESISTIRÉ project cycle is already providing answers to…
RESISTIRÉ develops its actions within three cycles that combine quantitative and qualitative research with co-creation activities.
Each cycle takes six months and is repeated twice, producing operational results while integrating insights from the previous one.
Research activities in 31 countries include mapping COVID-19 policies, analysing quantitative data, collecting direct inputs from victims of inequalities.
Research results are interpreted in Open Studios to co-create recommendations, propose ideas and identify knowledge gaps.
Recommendations are put into action to develop concrete actions, white papers, and further research inputs.
The process results in a new research agenda, advocacy, policy recommendations and the launch of innovative pilot actions.
