About this book

Grounded in black feminist scholarship and activism and formally coined in 1989 by black legal scholar Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, intersectionality has garnered significant attention in the field of public policy and other disciplines/fields of study. The potential of intersectionality, however, has not been fully realized in policy, largely due to the challenges of operationalization. Recently some scholars and activists began to advance conceptual clarity and guidance for intersectionality policy applications; yet a pressing need remains for knowledge development and exchange in relation to empirical work that demonstrates how intersectionality improves public policy. This handbook fills this void by highlighting the key challenges, possibilities and critiques of intersectionality-informed approaches in public policy. It brings together international scholars across a variety of policy sectors and disciplines to consider the state of intersectionality in policy research and analysis. Importantly, it offers a global perspective on the added value and “how-to” of intersectionality-informed policy approaches that aim to advance equity and social justice.

Reviews

“The first of its kind, and urgently needed to effect change in various policy arenas, this handbook will be of use to policy researchers, public policy stakeholders, students, faculty, activists and social justice advocates in a wide range of substantive areas.” (Lynn Weber, Professor Emerita, Department of Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies Program, University of South Carolina, USA)

“This handbook brings together an impressive group of international scholars who have made use of an intersectional analysis to consider carefully specific areas of policy, and who themselves reflect an intersectional and international approach to scholarship in facilitating the articulation and comparison of policies from different countries.” (Angelia R. Wilson, Professor of Politics, University of Manchester, UK)
