Title
Equality, diversity and intersections: policy practice and the place of gender
Author
Abstract
How are public administrations applying the ideas of diversity and mainstreaming in dealing with ethnic minorities and gender? This case study uses a critical frame analysis approach to evaluate the frames used for considering diversity and utilizing mainstreaming in two policy areas in Flanders. The case examines the equal opportunities and the integration areas, looking at key policy documents to see the extent to which the two use similar problem analysis and the extent to which there is potential for cooperation in a horizontal approach to equality. The equal opportunities office has a multi-strand approach, but not an intersectional one. The new integration area has a single strand focus. The potential for an intersectional mainstreaming approach seems low.
