Cases, Materials and Text on National, Supranational and International Non-Discrimination Law

Ius Commune Casebooks for the Common Law of Europe

Edited by: Dagmar Schiek, Mark Bell, Lisa Waddington

This casebook - the result of the collaborative efforts of a panel of experts from various EU Member States - is the latest in the Ius Commune Casebook series developed at the Universities of Maastricht and Leuven. The book provides a comprehensive resource for students, practitioners, researchers, public officials, NGOs, consumer organizations, and the judiciary. As non-discrimination law is a comparatively new subject, the book examines the concepts of discrimination law on the basis of a wide variety of young and often still emerging case law and legislation from various EU Member States. At the end of each chapter, a comparative overview ties the material together, with emphasis on existing or emerging general principles in the legal systems within Europe. The book illustrates the distinct relationship between international, European, and national legislation in the field of non-discrimination law. It covers the grounds of discrimination addressed in the Racial Equality and Employment Equality Directives as well as non-discrimination law relating to gender.
