This chapter is structured by a series of questions that could be used as a social work framework for critical intersectional reflexivity. Applying a contextual intersectional lens to issues of social justice in the Spanish context, foregrounds issues that resonate with the challenges, tensions and opportunities highlighted throughout this book with relevance to an international audience of social work. It is apparent that, the challenge of contextual intersectionality is of attending to ‘the micopoltics of context’ (Mohanty,2003: 223) within contemporary ‘political shifts to the right, accompanied by global capitalist hegemony, privatization, and increased religious, ethic, and racial hatreds’ (Mohanty, 2003: 229).
