Call for papers

The theme for the 65th edition in the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation’s series is Intersectionality.

The volume aims to deepen understanding of the application of intersectional approaches in policy and practice, and will identify progressive efforts at the in which intersectional approaches have been used to understand and address intersecting inequalities faced by people and their communities.
