Abstrakt

The article aims to integrate key concepts from social movement, citizenship and gender theories with a focus on (political) intersectionality at the interface of migration, race, gender and sexuality. It explores the responses from civil society groups to the exclusive intersections of right-wing politics and discourses in Austria and Denmark with a focus on inclusive intersectionality and transversal politics. The article asks if and how the intersectional repertoires of NGOs were able to create transversal politics and joint activities. As a result, the article explains why these NGOs were unable to counter right-wing hegemony.
The article uses the cases of Austria and Denmark to illustrate the diverse mobilisations of counter-forces against the attempts to forge an anti-migration and anti-Muslim consensus. The focus is on the mobilisation of anti-racist and pro-migrant groups, comparing their strategies and inclusionary repertoires including feminist claims, the framing of activist citizenship, acts of citizenship and of solidarity. The article scrutinizes strategies of transversal politics against the exclusionary right exist in the two countries and how they are influenced by the different contexts of civil society mobilisation, different political cultures, welfare and gender regimes as well as the differences between right-wing forces in the two countries.
