GendeRace -The Use of Racial Anti-Discrimination Laws: gender and citizenship in a multicultural context

Research Team: Eleonore Kofman, Elena Vacchelli & International Research Team

The GendeRace project researched the effectiveness of racial discrimination laws from the point of view of the target group and also a gender perspective. The project also argued that the intersectional experience of discrimination based on “race” and gender is not recognized and treated properly in legal and institutional frameworks because experiences are analysed and treated through the idea of a mutually exclusive checklist of discrimination. The research took place between 2008 to 2010 in six European Member states: Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Spain, Sweden and the UK, and was funded by the European Union 7th Framework Programme.
