Indeed, you raise many, several important points and it's a, it's a paradox. to see how affirmative action has been taken on by institutions all over the world, or by some national governments even. I mentioned Brazil, India, and, so at a time where in the US where these kind of initiatives came from are being seriously challenged after the decision of the Supreme Court and also what is happening in many of the states where you have a that are under the leadership, with a leader from the Republican Party.
So that's, one big challenge and perhaps, taking this notion of intersectionality into consideration can help that there are indirect ways of reaching the same target population that were helped through affirmative action programs that could be done by looking at other dimensions of the students. That's in the case of the US.
When you have hostile governments, as happens in Hungary, but in the case of LGBT population, if you think about Uganda, for example, that's a big challenge when you have not only government but also society where there is a high level of hostility and it's very difficult to bring in these dimensions into the higher education scene, but again, by using, proxies to promote equity and inclusion, may be a way around, although that's not, that's not, that;s not easy in the case of that I mentioned for Uganda
