Dr. Emilia Roig ist Gründerin und Direktorin des Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ) in Berlin. Sie promovierte an der Humboldt Universität zu Berlin und an der Science Po Lyon zum Thema strukturelle Diskriminierung in Frankreich und Deutschland aus einer intersektionellen Perspektive. Sie lehrte in Deutschland, Frankreich und USA zu Intersektionalität, Critical Race Theory und Postkoloniale Studien, sowie Völkerrecht und Europarecht.

Von 2007 bis 2011 arbeitete Sie bei der GIZ in Kambodscha, bei der ILO in Tanzania und Uganda und bei Amnesty International in Deutschland. Wenn eine Person multiplen Diskriminierungsformen ausgesetzt ist – zum Beispiel Rassismus und Sexismus –, spricht man von „Intersektionalität“.
