New RightsViews article by Prof. Inga Winkler
Thursday, December 1, 2016

In a new RightsViews article, Professor Inga Winkler warns that the rhetoric and actions of President-elect Trump have led to a legitimizing of “othering” and stigmatization in US society. She emphasizes that such stigmatization and “othering” provide a rationale and antecedent to discrimination and produce and perpetuate systemic inequalities.

Inga Winkler is a lecturer at ISHR. Her research focuses on socio-economic rights, gender equality and inequalities.
