    "Europski ženski lobi je od svojega osnutka većim dijelom bio sufinanciran (do 80 posto ponekad) od Europske komisije, koja, (...) Read more

    A recurring theme at the Nobel Women’s Initiative conference in Belfast has been a reflection on the last decade in terms of its global impact on women and human rights. A picture emerged of a period wherein the excuse of ‘war on terror’ as a justificatory narrative for exclusivist identities, state violence and violence against women gave way to official austerity narratives that, in their own way, entrench inequalities and disempower women.
