This is the second 2015 issue of the European Equality Law Review. It provides an overview of the latest legislative, policy, and case-law developments from 1 January to 31 July 2015 in the fields of non-discrimination and gender equality in the 35 countries that participate in the European Equality Law Network. These are the 28 Member States of the EU; the EFTA countries of Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway; and the candidate countries of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey. The Law Review also contains an overview of anti-discrimination and gender equality case-law from the CJEU and the ECtHR within the same time-frame, and contains four in-depth analytical articles on topics of relevance. Catharine Barnard and Alysia Blackham analyse the role played by gender equality law in matters of self-employment in the EU Member States, while Margarita Ilieva addresses the importance of procedural accommodation in the context of access to justice for persons with mental disabilities. Marjolein van den Brink and Jet Tigchelaar examine in their article the fast-developing subject of sex registration and gender identity. Finally, Christa Tobler focuses on the measures available in the EU to combat discrimination on the ground of sexual orientation.
