What evil from Istanbul? : Rhetoric of „gender ideology“ at the centre of argumentative and discursive analysis

The text aims to contribute to the growing body of academic literature on the versatility of the so-called gender ideology rhetoric. Scholars have been documenting across countries the various uses of the rhetoric and its swift adoption by mainstream political actors coming from an array of ideological backgrounds. This text adopts a set of analytical approaches of argumentative and discourse analysis in order to study the deliberations which led to the rejection of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (i.e. Istanbul Convention) by the Slovak National Council in 2019. By studying how the political actors construct possible problems linked to the convention, we aim to provide for better understanding of how “gender ideology” rhetoric succeeds in the Slovak policymaking environment despite its hazy nature, in light of the successful “anti-gender mobilisations” across Europe.

Keywords:

Istanbul Convention; gender ideology rhetoric; anti-gender movements;argumentative analysis; discourse analysis.
