Current economic systems are not only unequal but, arguably, often also discriminating and unjust. Members of BAME communities and women, for example, therefore often tend to find themselves in relatively disadvantaged economic positions. There is little discussion that policy makers should “do something about that.”
What, though, if individual and/or group interests collide? (How) are policy makers to prioritise? And what about the interests of people belonging to more than one discriminated group? (How) are the challenges they face different in nature?
This is where matters of equality and justice get tricky, both in theory as well as in practice. And this is also where applying an intersectionality approach to policy making gets interesting. This webinar is an attempt at demonstrating why and how to do so.
