The Geopolitics of Traditional Values - Lecture by Emil Edenborg
Time & Location
About the Event
Background: In recent years in a number of states across the world there has been an increased contestation of LGBTQ rights and stigmatization of sexual and gender minorities. In many cases, anti-LGBTQ politics is legitimated geopolitically: in terms of protecting “traditional values” from foreign harmful influence, strengthening national sovereignty and revising the global order.
The lecture: This lecture aims to explain the reason behind the rise of traditionalist values, as well as how this is entwined with geopolitics. What possibilities exist for contestation, resistance and change, on local as well as global levels?
The speaker: Emil Edenborg is a research at Utrikespolitiska institutet’s program for Global politics and security. His research focuses on sexuality, gender and nationalism through an international perspective.
This lecture will be held: Date: 3rd of June Time: 6 pm to 7 pm (CET) Location: Zoom Link: Soon to be added.
