Football Feminism – Global Governance Perspectives

Feb 24 25, 2020
9:00am - 6:00pm

22 Washington Square North, New York, NY 10011

This two-day symposium will bring together scholars and practitioners from around the world to critically examine the transnational system of governance that regulates football (soccer) through the lens of gender. The presentation and discussion of interdisciplinary research (works-in-progress) on this topic aims to elucidate the operation of discrimination in and through the structures, rules, and practices of football governance; to assess various understandings of, and approaches to, advancing gender equality in this context; and to contemplate innovative ideas for feminist reform or reimagination of an increasingly complex and globalized system of significant social, economic, and political import.

This symposium is convened by Joseph Weiler, Professor of Law, and Michele Krech, JSD Candidate, with support from the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice at NYU School of Law.
