Roundtable: On the Use of Categories in Diversity Research and Policies

Monday 16 November 2020

Hosted by the Diversity Research Cluster of the Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology

This roundtable presents a conversation on categorization of human difference, such as gender, race, ethnicity, class, ability, etc. in diversity research and policies. How do we deal with the categories of difference that scholars, policy-makers and citizens use in a search for more equality? Can we combat discrimination without using categories or do we actually need them? We invite you to join our four Leiden University colleagues in a discussion on the barriers and opportunities of the use of categories in ‘diversity and inclusion’.


Moderator: Dr. Jasmijn Rana (FSW – Cultural Anthropology)

Dr. Aya Ezawa Diversity and Inclusion Expertise Office
Dr. Shivant Jhagroe FGGA – Public Administration
Prof. Dr. Peter Pels FSW – Cultural Anthropology
