Seminar 3: Mainstreaming equality and diversity in particular settings and contexts
The seminar series will give policy-makers, academics and activists the opportunity to discuss the key issues of mainstreaming equality in different parts of the UK and consider the wider picture in Europe and North America.
This seminar will explore the experiences of equalities policies in a specific social context and in relation to particular equality groups. The focus will be exploring how the policy of mainstreaming equality works in practice, and what the trade-offs are for different groups. The empirical challenges of undertaking research on multiple aspects of identity will be considered.
