Commentary and Literature Review: “The Europeanization of the Intersectional Approach to Combating Discrimination: Debates, Policies and Institutional Changes” by Kaisa Vuoristo

Commentary and Literature Review (August 2013) By Kaisa Vuoristo, PhD candidate (joint degree), Université de Montréal and École Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France.

The concept of intersectionality has been described as one of the most important theoretical insights of the Women’s Studies literature (McCall 2005, 1771). Although this perspective was first developed within Women’s and Gender studies, it has quickly attracted the attention of other disciplinary fields. Today, important contributions are being made in the area of intersectionality research, especially in Europe. This report aims to review recent publications on the subject in Europe.
