Researching Intersectionality

Date: Tuesday 21 August
Time: 10:30-11:20
Place: Bergen Resource Centre for International Development, Jekteviksbakken 31, Bergen

Human rights violations are closely related to structural inequalities in society – when we look at barriers to the implementation of the right to health we need to take as a starting point how overlapping structures of discrimination – age, sex, race, class, religion, caste, sexual orientation, gender identity – Intersect to form barriers to rights realization, including of the right to health. This poses challenges for research as well as for policy.
