ABSTRACT

This book rests on the premise that we cannot act socially to enable the liberation possibilities of individuals, communities and societies without intersectionality. Thus, this book opens up critical analysis of questions such as: How and why does intersectionality challenge the structures and discourses of social work education, management and organisation both within a multinational, multicultural, multi-faith UK and wider global context? How does intersectionality work to disrupt political, social and discursive constructions that act as defence mechanisms designed to disavow complicity with oppression? What is the internal revolutionary potential of practices founded on intersectionality?
