For staff


European-led initiatives have undoubtedly changed the nature of equality policies in the Member States. Women in the UK have benefited greatly from membership of the EU/EEC; thus, looking at Brexit as a process provides a unique opportunity to reflect on the relationship, and patterns of influence, between European and national legislation. For this year's lecture, we warmly welcome Roberta Guerrina, Professor of Politics at the University of Surrey and expert in EU gender politics and policies.

Professor Guerrina is interested in understanding the impact of gender (hierarchies) on key policy areas traditionally seen as gender neutral, such as Brexit, Security and Defence. Currently, she is working on the unintended gender consequences of the UK's withdrawal from the EU. She has published in the area of Brexit; women, peace and security; work-life balance; identity politics, and the idea of Europe. She is also Jean Monnet Chair and co-founder of the UACES funded collaborative research network "Gendering EU Studies".

She co-authored (with Annick Masselot) 'Walking in the Shadow of EU Law', one of the leading articles on the gendered impact of the UK's withdrawal from the EU, and during this talk she will explore the gendered nature of the process of withdrawing from the European Union.
