Akwugo Emejulu, Leah Bassel

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


Women of Colour Resist is a cross-national comparative research project that
examines how women of colour activists in the Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany,
Spain and the United Kingdom strategise, organise and mobilise against austerity,
against the far right and for migrants’ rights. The six countries in our study are
currently experiencing some form of destabilisation due to a combination of
austerity, a backlash to migration and illiberal politics. Our project attempts to
make visible women of colour’s activist labour. Working with six research assistants
who conducted the fieldwork, we undertook 167 interviews and focus groups and
analysed activists’ social media activity from May 2019 to January 2020.
