Unser Mitglied Heidi Meinzolt nahm als Expertin an einem Webinar von WIDE+ zu Militärausgaben aus feministischer Perspektive teil.
Military spending worldwide has been consecutively increasing for the past 7 years. In 2021 it reached an all-time high of $2.1 trillion. Not much attention has been given in politics to how this increased military spending impacts other dimensions like welfare or gender equality. There is a need to reflect on military spending from a feminist political economy perspective. With this online event, we will look at trends among European governments to deliver weapons to Ukraine and elsewhere as well as increase their defense budget.
The webinar is part of a series of the organization WIDE+, responsible are Deniz Ceren and Gea Meijers. Our member Heidi Meinzolt as well as Annemarie Sancar (PWAG Switzerland) and Anne-Floore Dekker (Wo-men, Netherlands) were invited as experts.
