L’articolo esamina come la legislazione dell’Unione europea contro la discriminazione metta alla prova le misure anti-crisi dell’UE dal una prospettiva di critical legal studies. Tali studi si caratterizzano per la loro sfida alla ‘lex’ attraverso il riferimento allo ‘ius’ e i loro collegamenti critici con i movimenti sociali. La legislazione della UE contro la discriminazione attrae critiche in quanto costituisce un campo socio-giuridico compartimentato che impedisce di rendere giustizia a coloro che si trovano all’intersezione tra diseguaglianze. Definendo, come scopo della legislazione comunitaria contro la discriminazione, la lotta contro gli svantaggi derivanti dall’alterità ascritta attorno ai nodi ‘sesso/genere’, ‘razza/etnia’ e ‘disabilità’, l’articolo propone una convincente visione normativa, idonea a de-compartimentare il campo e ad indirizzare in modo adeguato l’intersezionalità. Questa prospettiva critico-giuridica sull’intersezionalità differisce dalla prospettiva sociologica in quanto omette la classe come categoria. L’articolo dimostra che questa distinzione è necessaria affinché la legislazione EU contro la discriminazione mantenga il suo taglio critico.
