Immigration to Norway: History, gender and the present

Τhe Centre for Gender Studies of Panteion University in collaboration with the Center for Gender Studies of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) invites you to the 4th Online Lecture of the project ProGender: A Digital Hub on Gender, the Covid-19 Crisis and its Aftermath entitled “Immigration to Norway: History, gender and the present”, on Monday May 10, 2021, 16:00 – 17:30 CET.

The gender impacts of COVID-19 and the responses to the virus may vary in different groups and communities. Especially groups that face housing precarity are more susceptible to experience great hardship during and after the pandemic. For migrants and asylum seekers living in temporary centres and for homeless people access to clean water, soap and food might not be guaranteed. Women are especially vulnerable when they find themselves in such precarious housing conditions which render them unable to take care of themselves and their children, or get support and protection from gender-based violence.
