Abstract

As the many forms of intolerance are all interrelated, this paper extends previous research on multiple discrimination, its conceptualisation, perceptions, experiences and proposals for anti-discrimination policies. It provides the key results of a project aimed at developing a conceptual framework of multiple discrimination, plus some proposals for anti-discrimination policies. Several different research strategies were applied, combining the analysis of available data and materials produced by the research team itself. The first approach included the analysis of eurobarometers on discrimination in the European Union, along with nationwide surveys conducted in Spain. The primary data corresponded to both qualitative materials (gathered through focus groups and interviews with members of Spanish NGOs, policy makers and social experts), and quantitative data from a CAWI survey on teaching staff at Spanish universities. The diagnosis concluded with the proposal of several anti-discrimination policies to tackle multiple discrimination in societies where different experiences of discrimination converge.
