Professor Iyiola Solanke visited the Hertie School as part of the CIVICA Research Excellence Tours, giving a talk on how to centre Black women in EU equality law.
In these complex and uncertain times, the European Union is facing various tensions. Phenomena such as migratory flows, (dis)integration processes, the green transition, or globalisation lead to multiple societal, political, structural and economic challenges. Understanding and addressing these challenges requires not only transdisciplinary approaches, but also reflections on the methodology itself.
Under this thematic priority, CIVICA scholars of various backgrounds address key issues about the EU from the perspective of social sciences. By examining cross-disciplinary topics such as migration or the environment, the area engages thematically with other CIVICA thematic priorities, in particular Challenges to Democracy in the 21st Century, and Societies in Transition, Crises of Earth.
