European Equality Law Network

European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination

Law reviews

The second 2016 issue of the European Equality Law Review provides an overview of the latest legislative, policy, and case-law developments from 1 January to 30 June 2016 in the fields of non-discrimination and gender equality in the 35 countries that participate in the Network. The Law Review furthermore contains an overview of non-discrimination and gender equality case-law from the CJEU and the ECtHR within the same time-frame. It also contains four in-depth articles. In the field of gender equality law, Ulrike Lembke, the Network’s German gender equality expert, provides a conceptual analysis. Her article questions the use of sex and gender in EU law, and asks whether tackling sex discrimination actually promotes gender equality. Ivana Krstic, the Network’s Serbian expert for both gender equality and non-discrimination, analyses gender equality law in three candidate countries: the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. In the field of non-discrimination, Niall Crowley, consultant and former chief executive officer for the Irish equality body, provides an article examining the phenomenon of merging the mandates of equality bodies and of National Human Rights Institutions, examining the potential consequences of such mergers for non-discrimination and equality issues. The final article is authored by the Network’s non-discrimination experts for Hungary, Andras Kadar, and for Romania, Romaniţa Iordache, together with legal scholar Istvan Haller. It analyses the judicial approaches in Hungary and Romania to hate speech, from the perspective of non-discrimination law and beyond.
