International Handbook on Diversity Management at Work

Country Perspectives on Diversity and Equal Treatment

Edited by Alain Klarsfeld

Managing and developing diversity is on the political and business agenda in many countries; therefore diversity management has become an area of knowledge and practice in its own right. Yet all too often it is referred to as a unifying concept, as if it were to be interpreted uniformly across all cultures and countries. The contributors to this volume expertly examine the relationship between diversity management and equality legislation within the different participating countries’ national contexts. They advocate that such separation and sequencing between equality at work and diversity management is far from natural.

Globalization and increasing diversity around the world have spawned expanding comparative research on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Comparative and multi-country EDI research can assist with construct development and theory testing, informing best practices, development of an index, typology or continuum, and identifying patterns and trends. Drawing from our collective experiences, we discuss the purpose, types and methodological issues related to comparative and multi-country EDI work. We also offer suggestions on emerging topics on EDI and the appropriate methodologies to undertake multi-country research. We note that comparative research work on EDI can be challenging and rewarding, also more importantly, it can lead to interesting findings and ground-breaking discoveries.

This chapter discusses the emergence of diversity management and how international comparisons can inform our understanding of and perspectives regarding the general shift from equality to diversity and associated human resource policy. The chapter takes a more focused perspective on four specific diversity strands (gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity/immigration, and religion) where important developments have been unfolding in recent years, sometimes amidst extreme conditions. The authors reveal important disparity in legal protections between and within the various diversity strands and cultural contexts.
