About this book

An exploration of the ways that multiple inequalities are being addressed in Europe. Using country-based and region-specific case studies it provides an innovative comparative analysis of the multidimensional equality regimes that are emerging in Europe, and reveals the potential that these have for institutionalizing intersectionality.

Reviews

Insitutionalizing Intersectionality is an essential tool for understanding and promoting democratic performance in the 21st century. It maps out the new concept of intersectionality as it has been transposed into government structures at the EU level and across many of the member states. The book's systematic, empirical and comparative approach carried out by a line-up of top scholars makes it a must-read for academics and policy practitioners alike.

Professor Amy G. Mazur, Washington State University.

'The concept of intersectionality has come to loom large in debates about equality, discrimination and social inclusion across Europe. It poses difficult questions for policymakers, activists and academics alike, by focusing attention on the multiple and overlapping forms of inequality that exist in contemporary society. This book provides an outstanding comparative and multi-disciplinary overview of how European governance structures have tried to come to grips with intersectionality, with its highly impressive range of contributors providing invaluable criticial perspectives and insightful analysis on developments in this field.'

Colm O' Cinneide, Reader in Laws, UCL Faculty of Laws
