The 7th annual meeting of RINGS (The International Research Association of Institutions of Advanced Gender Studies) showed important local differences, but also common developments concerning gender equality, diversity and Gender Studies in different countries across the world. On the one hand, increased polarization becomes visible in the resistance to gender equality and Gender Studies. On the other hand, there have been various legal achievements and there is a growing demand for gender theoretical knowledge from the media and by students.

RINGS is deeply concerned about the war and conflict in Ukraine, as we are about wars and armed conflicts elsewhere, and the impact that these are having on civil society, gender relations, the environment, on the work of academics and students. We join the global call for ending the war in Ukraine and commit ourselves as the RINGS organisation to peace and democracy. As a global movement, we at RINGS connect researchers across the world in the pursuit of gender justice and we extend our solidarity to all those who are calling for peace and dialogue.
