This seminar compares and assesses a range of "affirmative action" or "positive action" policies around the globe. These policies are designed to advance equal opportunity and social inclusion by extending special measures to targeted members of historically marginalized populations, particularly racial or ethnic minorities and women. In this seminar we explore the emergence of affirmative action in these various countries focusing specifically on the legal contours of such programs, their human rights implications, and the constraining influence of particular national mythologies about race and gender.
