Intersectionality in Europe: a depoliticized concept?
CIJ's Executive Director Dr. Emilia Roig questions in this article written for the Völkerrechtsblog whether intersectionality has lost its political meaning and transformative power in Europe. She claims that "the gradual erasure of race from intersectionality by European feminist scholars has had far-reaching consequences for the fight for racial justice in Europe. It has classified “intersectionality” as a sub-discipline of gender studies and feminism, leaving out the political claims of racialized women."

CIJ's Associated Expert and Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute Cengiz Barskanmaz elaborates in this article written for the Völkerrechtsblog how the framing of race in the German context is intrinsically linked to the legal responses to race-based discrimination and inequality.

The Racialization of Sexual Violence in Germany: Intersectional Politics in a Post-feminist Era
CIJ's Associated Expert Stefanie C. Boulila co-authored with Christiane Carri an article on the racialization of sexual violence in Germany. They explain why it is detrimental to feminist agendas at large. They contend that "Cologne illustrated the difficulty of addressing systemic injustices in a climate that is both committed to the post-feminist contention that sexism is a reminiscence of a past and that anti-racism is a distraction from ‘the real dangers’ that immigration brings about."
