A Dialogical Conversation: A Response to the Responses

  • Nira Yuval-Davis


I have found all three responses to my article fascinating and thought-provoking. Of course, these three chapters are much more than mere responses — each in their own way, to a lesser or greater degree, has taken my paper as a point of departure to reflect upon the related ideas of the politics of belonging, intersectionality and transversal politics, as well as to tell the stories of the fascinating women and women’s groups they have been working with. I find that even when seemingly the writers do not agree with what I have written (or sometimes the way they interpret what I’ve written), there is a basic agreement and a shared perspective with them all.
