Abstract

This article examines the implementation of gender mainstreaming and intersectionality in urban policies in Spain and Austria. The study uses a mixed qualitative research design, incorporating semi-structured interviews and document analysis, including key urban planning and equality laws in both countries. The findings indicate that while both Spain and Austria have made progress in incorporating gender mainstreaming into their urban policies, there is still a significant lack in the integration of intersectionality principles.
