Short description:

This book provides an analysis of how anti-discrimination law works or does not work in continental European countries. It offers an innovative comparative, critical, legal and socio-legal, look at jurisdictions beyond the common law.

Long description:
This collection of essays explores the evolution of anti-discrimination law in European civil law jurisdictions. Historically, scholarship in this area has focused on the common law, which has also taken the lead in developing the theory and practice of anti-discrimination law. This volume breaks new ground by offering a sustained, critical, legal and socio-legal, comparative look at how anti-discrimination is faring in European civil law environments. While it is true that anti-discrimination law is seen as a foreign transplant in some regions, it does not fare poorly across the board. As shown by the case studies herein, the success of anti-discrimination law is found to vary according to its national context, the actors involved, and the evolution of the particular concept or ground of discrimination in question.

This collection of essays nicely complements the broad existing literature on anti-discrimination law ... Ultimately, the contributions prompt the reader to go beyond the boundaries of their own research framework and build bridges between legal regimes. As a constellation of studies enriched by their combination, this volume meets expectations and paves the way for future comparative and socio-legal research.
