The network is aimed at analyzing what is occurring with respect to studies of racism, racialization, ethnic discrimination and anti-racism in a cross-section with research on gender norms and practices, as well as politics in the sphere of sexuality in the countries of Eurasia and Eastern Europe. The network will facilitate an exchange of information, discussions around ongoing projects and new publications around these issues, and will bring together researchers dealing with both historical and contemporary problems. The project includes organization of two-days workshop and creation of a network. The workshop and network will contribute to expanding knowledge on the racial and ethnic discrimination from a gender perspective in Eurasia and the Baltic Sea region. It will help to better explore the similarities and differences among the countries of Western and Eastern Europe around the issues of ethnic discrimination and anti-racism, and facilitate academic discussion around these issues.
