Welcome to the DFG Research Unit “Law – Gender – Collectivity”

Our interdisciplinary Research Unit has been active since January 2018. It brings together scholars of law, sociologists, European ethnologists and historians from the three major Berlin universities, the University of Potsdam and the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). Read more…

The Research Unit consists of six sub-projects and a coordinating project. In every sub-project, a team investigates a particular empirical research field. In our second funding phase (2021-2024), these are environmental law and climate litigation (A), transnational labor conflicts (B), urban & housing commons (C), consumer protection (D), processes of infrastructurization (E), and human rights, queer genders and sexualities since the 1970s (F).


45th Feminist Lawyers' Conference

The Feminist Lawyers' Conference is a self-organized space to explore the connections between law and gender, domination and emancipation, and to develop legal policy strategies for action. Feminist legal studies find one of its few homes in the German-speaking world here. In addition to lectures, workshops and panels on a wide variety of topics, there will be celebrations, networking and exchange.

The Feminist Lawyers' Conference is open to all women*, both cis and trans, and to all those who cannot or do not want to assign themselves to one of the conventional genders.

Save the date: 10.05.2019-12.05.2019 // Venue: Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Platz der Universität 3, 79098 Freiburg.
