Culture Wars in Europe and Eurasia

The Culture Wars Initiative explores the dynamic nature of culture wars in Europe and Eurasia, looking at both domestic contexts and transnational actors, grassroots movements and ideological instrumentalization, and discusses how culture wars are reshaping definitions of belonging, citizenship, and moral order. Contentious topics range from the classic abortion issue and the new flagship of LGBT+ rights to euthanasia, bioethics, medically assisted procreation, domestic violence, juvenile justice, climate change, vaccination and lockdown measures. The series offers a platform for sharing both scholarly works and more opinion pieces on the nature of today’s culture wars, as well as on the constructed nature of this same notion of culture wars.
