One of the biggest changes, brought by the presidency of Volodymyr Zelens’kyj, was the renewal of political elites. Even though the discussions about the quality of the so called “new faces”, through this spectacular change of government, were the main reason that got her into parliament, politicians like Maryna Bardina are the hope of the country. In her lecture the young politician will be presenting one of the main topics of the new government – the fight for Gender Equality, which came into focus of Ukrainian politics and government reforms. In the last few years, the Ukraine beheld important changes: quota systems for gender were realised in electoral law and new rules for children supervision were developed. The legal mechanisms to prevent domestic violence were improved as well – Ukraine participates in the Biarritz Partnership for Gender Equality. Nevertheless, the support of female leadership in pollical parties and the continuance of the principle of Gender equality in the country’s politics are big challenges for the country. After the lecture the audience will get the chance to question the in foreign countries still fairly unknown members of the “Grünen”.
Moderation: Roman Dubasevych and Inna Melnykovska
Organizational information on the digital lecture
The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg is offering this event live as a zoom meeting, in which viewers can also take part in the subsequent discussion with video contributions.
- We would be delighted if you gave your real name when dialing into Zoom. Of course, you can also take part in the event under a pseudonym.
- A list of all participants is available to all those involved during the entire event.
- During the lecture, the microphones of the audience are all automatically muted so as not to generate any disturbing background noise. You can turn on the audience's camera during the lecture.
- In the discussion that follows, requests to speak or questions can be displayed using the "Raise hand" function. You can find these - depending on the device - under the button "Participant", "More" or "Reactions" in Zoom. You can also lower your hand again if you want to withdraw the question.
- The moderator keeps a speech list and gives the floor in the order of the messages. If the moderator asks you to bring your question or request to speak, the user interface will ask you to turn on your microphone. If you have not already done so, you are welcome to turn on your camera. This is particularly desirable when presenting longer requests to speak so that the presenter can also see who is asking the question or who is making the comment.
- Of course, you also have the option of asking your questions in writing in the chat.
