Intersectionality, within a European academic context, has been widely used both as a theory of identity as well as a method to analyze processes of power and inequality. From a minority perspective, intersectionality has emphasized the particular vulnerability of minority women and the multiple barriers that they face in realizing their rights. In broader terms, it remains useful to understand the dynamics of social divisions and lines of exclusion but also the possibilities to create spaces for solidarity, resistance and empowerment, including within processes of minority protection standard setting. To discuss the implications of intersectionality as a sub-field of minority studies, the research activities will aim to re-draw a research agenda on intersectionality from an explicit minority cultural perspective.
