Session Abstract

This roundtable explores the intersections of gender, sexuality and social justice. It aims to contribute to more meaningful solidarity efforts towards peace and social justice by critically engaging with binary, heteronormative and ethnocentric assumptions around gender, sexuality and race, underlying public policies, and development interventions. It brings scholars from four different regions who are at the crossroads of academia and multiple professional and activist engagements, shaping debates, struggles and policies in relation to development and social justice issues. The studies are based on original research and offer nuanced theoretical and methodological approaches from an intersectional feminist lens.
