In recent years gender and sexual diversity politics have become contentious issues around the globe.
Resistance to these politics has assembled a burgeoning group of organizations that identify rights based on sexual orientation and gender identity as a threat, ranging from populist radical right parties, social movements, NGOs, think tanks and foundations.
Bringing together a variety of scholars working on anti-gender and far-right politics, the event investigates the collaboration among right-wing groups to contribute to broader discussion on international politics and explains how gender and sexuality shape global politics today.
