On 14 March 2019, PhD researcher Asa Ekvall (under the joint supervision of ISS/EUR and University of Antwerp) will defend her thesis entitled 'Gender Inequality, Homophobia and Violence: the three pillars of patriarchal norms and attitudes and their relations'. 

Ms. Asa Ekvall's research studies how attitudes to gender (in)equality, heteronormativity and various types of violence are related to each other. Specific attention is given in the paper to the relations between patriarchal attitudes and violent conflict, next to the more often studied relations between patriarchy and violence against women and gay men. It also investigates possibilities to change patriarchal attitudes towards gender, heteronormativity and violence, making them more egalitarian.

Ms. Asa Ekvall's thesis and this Public Defence are a result from a partnership agreement on joint supervision between the University of Antwerp and ISS/EUR. The Public Defence will take place on Thursday 14 March 2019. The ceremony will begin promptly at 16.00 hrs in Aula Bof the ISS, Kortenaerkade 12, The Hague. The doors will be closed after the start of the Public Defence, but will be briefly opened after the candidate’s introduction to allow latecomers to enter.

The ceremony will be followed by a reception in the Atrium of the ISS. And the professors are invited to join the academic procession.
