Eva Karlberg is a PhD student in Sociology at the postgraduate school of "Politics, Economy and the Organization of Society" (PESO) at Södertörn University. She is interested in how national social movements organize internationally. In her dissertation Eva writes about the women's movements in Poland and Sweden and their relation to the EU and the European Women's Lobby - an organization gathering the women's organizations all over Europe. What happens when the women's movement's organizations at national level try to adapt to an institutional pressure? The analysis is based both on the specific movement context which the organizations are part of, and on organizational aspects and the internal dynamic which occurs when several organizations cooperate through the creation of a new meta-organization.
