Minerva Project (FEPS – Economia Civile)

The project is coordinated by Marcella Corsi and Carlo D’Ippoliti and carried out in partnership with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (http://www.feps-europe.eu). It aims to deepen our knowledge of gender issues in the socio-economic domain through a multi-disciplinary and progressive approach. Such an endeavor is especially timely for two reasons. On the one hand, since the crisis of 2008 the position and role of women has considerably changed, and continues to do so in ways that require much more investigation. On the other hand, the crisis – which is not just financial and not fully over yet – offers invaluable opportunities for radical change, including the potential to advance equality for women and men.
