The term “intersection theory” refers to the work of sociology professors Marijke van der Klaauw, John Curtice and Joost de Bruin that uses a “distinctively Dutch” academic approach to analyzing contemporary intersectional issues.
“It’s important to keep the conversation up and moving in the context of the past and present, because it’s always important to think of intersection in terms of social change, social justice, and equity,” said van der Kaans.
The concept is a blend of sociology, economics and political science.
It has been used by academics and academics, business leaders, politicians and academics for decades.
“The intersection theory has a lot of roots in the 1960s, it’s a continuation of that tradition,” said Dr. de Bruine.
The field has expanded over the years to include gender and racial studies, sociology of sexuality, international studies, globalisation and comparative politics.
“For a long time, it was the focus of the academic world, but we have seen a real evolution in the last 10 years,” said de Bruins co-author, Joost De Bruin.
“In particular, the shift to the intersection theory of globalisation is really important because that’s the time when there is the potential to change the way that we look at the world.”
Dr. van der Koerner said that the rise of the Internet, the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence is bringing an unprecedented level of communication and interaction.
“We have the internet now and the internet of things.
They’re all interconnected and the whole world is connected,” he said.”
So there is an opportunity to create a more holistic view of the world and of the future.”
The intersection theorists work has focused on issues related to inequality and inclusion, such as the growing gap between the income and wealth of women in the developed world and the gap between those in the developing world and those in North America.
“There are a lot more people in the world today who are in poverty than there were even 20 years ago,” said Prof. de Groot.
“And the gap is growing exponentially.”
