Seminar 2: Mainstreaming equality and diversity in different national contexts: Implications for policy and practice
Seminar 2: Mainstreaming equality and diversity in different national contexts: Implications for policy and practice.
This seminar will address a key idea underpinning mainstreaming, that universal principles of equality apply to all groups. However, there are long-running debates over the emphasis placed on commonality and difference. Specific groups may face particular barriers in achieving equality, and therefore different equality strategies may be required. Finally, there are competing understandings of equality, which may be defined in terms of access, procedure or outcome.
