The aim of this chapter is to examine multidimensional approaches to equality from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, policy, and practice. In particular, it examines the e?cacy of a certain mode of interventionism. First, however, we need to clarify what we mean by multidimensionality. Schiek rightly points out that the term is open to some confusion in that it may, for example, refer to di?erent conceptions of equality or to di?erent sets of grounds speci?ed in order 'to achieve equality for multi-faceted human beings in social reality'.1
