Title
Other identities in ethnofederations : womens and sexual minorities advocacy in Belgium
Author
Abstract
This article considers the experience of the impact of ethnofederations on social identities that cut across such an ethnic divide. Based on a series of in-depth interviews focusing on the structure and operation of womens and lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender movement organizations in Belgium, we demonstrate that these groups experience constraints of the dominant ethno-linguistic identity. These results in a federalism disadvantage for identities cross-cutting the ethnic divide, the result of which is a neglect of policy competencies situated at the federal level.
