European Equality Law Network

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

Law reviews


The European equality law review is produced by the European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination (EELN). The aim of the EELN is to provide the European Commission and the general public with independent information regarding gender equality and non-discrimination law and, more specifically, on the transposition and implementation of the EU equality and non-discrimination directives. While the European Equality Law Review has been published biannually under previous contracts with the European Commission, it is published once a year under the current contract. 

The current issue provides an overview of legal and policy developments across Europe and, as far as possible, reflects the state of affairs from 1 January to 30 June 2022. This issue opens with four in-depth articles. The first article by Laura Carlson from Stockholm University explores effective enforcement mechanisms and sanctions in the European Commission’s proposed directive to strengthen the application of the principle of equal pay for equal work or work of equa value between men and women through pay transparency and enforcement mechanisms. The second article on intersectional discrimination, by Raphaële Xenidis from the University of Edinburgh, focuses on the engagement of the Court of Justice of the EU with the issue of intersectional discrimination in the context of the so-called ‘headscarf’ cases. The third article, by Margarita S. Ilieva and András Kádár, the national non-discrimination experts for Bulgaria and Hungary respectively, explores the regulation of victimisation in Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy and Poland, and identifies good practices as well as gaps and shortcomings in these jurisdictions. The final article, by Cathérine Van de Graaf from the University of Ghent, explores the legal frameworks and practice of mediation procedures in discrimination cases in Austria, Belgium, Ireland and Portugal.
