Collaborating on Combating Anti-Discrimination? Anti-Racist and Gender Equality Organisations in Europe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter is about transeuropean collaboration among civil society actors who may or may not be construed as having diverging goals. Specifically, it looks at the discourses and collaborative practices within and between two European umbrella organisations: the European Women´s Lobby [EWL] and the European Network Against Racism [ENAR]. The chapter builds from the starting point that previous research frequently has highlighted the inability of EWL to include considerations of women´s diversity (Hoskyns, 1991; Williams, 2003; Pudrovska and Ferree, 2004; Rolandsen Agustín, 2011). But there is little previous research on the reverse side, looking into whether diversity organizations, like ENAR, focus on gender.
