Health inequalities and ethnic vulnerabilities during COVID-19 in the UK: A reflection on the PHE reports, was cited by the Scottish government.
Clare Keys from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education and Dr Toni Wright from the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Social Care, along with colleagues Dr Gowri Nanayakkara (Government Legal Team), Dr Chisa Onyejekwe (University of the West of England) and Dr Rajeeb Sah (Huddersfield University), had their work Health inequalities and ethnic vulnerabilities during COVID-19 in the UK: A reflection on the PHE reports cited by the Scottish government in their recent report Using intersectionality in policymaking and analysis.
The report is an evidence synthesis of literature on the concept of intersectionality. It looks at what the concept means, how it can be applied to policymaking and analysis, and provides spotlight examples. You can access the main report here and the summary report here.
The cited team said: "Intersectionality is a term coined in 1989 by feminist legal scholar Professor Kimberle Crenshaw. It is a term that conceptualises the accumulation of much social justice work done by Black feminists and feminists of colour. It is really encouraging to see the Scottish Government reference the genealogy of the term intersectionality and embrace it as a tool for better policymaking and analysis. Of course, it is also delightful to see that our work has had an impact at national level."
