Abstract

In the contemporary political landscape, identity politics has become a central and often contentious subject. This article examines the concept of identity politics through the lens of intersectionality, exploring how the diverse and interacting social identities of individuals shape their experiences and political engagement. It argues that intersectionality offers a valuable framework for understanding how systems of oppression, such as racism, sexism, and classism, intersect and impact individuals and communities differently. By incorporating an intersectional approach into modern governance, governments can develop more equitable and responsive policies that address the specific needs and challenges faced by diverse populations.
