Urban inequalities through an intersectional perspective
This project investigates how to approach urban inequalities in a way that makes it possible to highlight the multiplicity of experiences involving gender, race, and sexuality in urban segregated spaces. More broadly, it looks at the relationship between the right to the city and the access to urban public policies. The project proposes to explore theoretical and methodological tools that allow to exam urban inequalities based on the combination of these inequality markers, that is, from an intersectional approach. It proposes to study new epistemologies, categories of investigation and analysis, and concepts that make it possible to highlight the diversity of experiences in segregated urban spaces and guide more inclusive urban public policies.
