From the international organizations to our own little communities and families, everything has been shaken by the current COVID-19 pandemic. Global problems associated with poverty, hunger, and surely health, have been foregrounded. The crisis has led to a lot of new issues and accelerated many others. When it is just a decade to reach the deadline of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda, the path seems to have dramatically changed. This challenge also provides an opportunity to act for a fairer and greener society while tackling the consequences of this tremendous disruption. The conference will be student-led, strengthening the student centred value emphasized in the alliance, giving a main role to them, their rich ideas and voices speaking from all over Europe. “Rethinking the UN SDG Agenda in the Post Pandemic Era” will look at the particular effect of the health crisis on the SDGs, especially in cities, inequalities, consumption and other topics in a transdisciplinary way. Encouraging the participation of experts in the fields and university students in order to create a joint conversation necessary to widen our perspectives and therefore work towards these goals while leaving no one behind.

"Rethinking the UN SDG Agenda in the Post-Pandemic Era: Building new priorities, facing new challenges and seizing opportunities" is a student-centered online conference organized by Eutopia, the university alliance of like-minded universities consisting of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, University of Warwick, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, CY Cergy Paris Université, University of Gothenburg and University of Ljubljana.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University and an MSc in African Politics from SOAS.

Cynthia Enloe is a feminist theorist and writer internationally renowned for her work on gender and militarism and for her contributions to the field of feminist international relations. In 2017, she was selected to be named on the Gender Justice Legacy Wall, installed in the International Crimes Court, The Hague.

At Clark University, Professor Enloe served as director of the Women’s Studies Program and as chair of the Political Science Department, and received the Outstanding Teacher Award three times.She now is a research professor in the Department of International Development, Community, and Environment (IDCE), and is affiliated with both the Political Science Department and with Women’s and Gender Studies.

Professor Enloe’s career has included Fulbrights in Malaysia and Guyana, guest professorships in Japan, Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Her books include Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women’s Lives (2000), The Curious Feminist (2004) and Nimo’s War, Emma’s War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War, (2010), The Real State of America: Mapping the Myths and Truths about the United States (co-authored with Joni Seager) (2011, revised 2014). Seriously!

Enloe’s thoroughly updated and revised 2nd edition of Bananas, Beaches and Bases was published by University of California Press, 2014.

Professor Enloe’s feminist teaching and research have explored the interplay of gendered politics in both the national and international arenas, with special attention to how women’s labor is made cheap in globalized factories (especially sneaker factories) and how women’s emotional and physical labor has been used to support many governments’ war-waging policies — and how diverse women have tried to resist these efforts. Racial, class, ethnic and national identity dynamics, as well as ideas about femininities and masculinities, are common threads throughout her studies.
