Intersectionality has in fact been studied by universities and tested in one-off projects led by public administrations and civil society, but there is little experience of its practical implementation. This project will develop a pilot scheme to apply the intersectional perspective in the Terrassa City Council structure and activities, in order to effectively implement the principle of…Read More »
