European Equality Law Network

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

Law reviews

The first 2019 issue of the European Equality Law Review provides a new overview of legal and policy developments across Europe, reflecting the state of affairs from 1 July to 31 December 2018. It describes the most recent case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights and details the most relevant developments in the same period in legislation, case law and policy in the 36 countries that are covered by the network.

This Law Review furthermore includes four in-depth analytical articles. First, Tamás Kádár, Deputy Director and Head of Legal and Policy at Equinet, the European Network of Equality Bodies, analyses the legal standing of equality bodies with a particular focus on Belgium, Romania and Sweden, exploring different forms of legal standing and the ways equality bodies have used this standing. In the second article, Sybe de Vries, Professor of EU Single Market Law and Fundamental Rights at Utrecht University, looks at the horizontal direct effects of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights for gender equality after the 2018 landmark decision of the CJEU in Bauer. In the third article, the Romanian non-discrimination expert Romaniţa Iordache examines the practice of invoking a religious ethos to discriminate on grounds of sexual orientation in access to goods and services. The fourth article by the Icelandic gender equality expert Herdís Thorgeirsdóttir tackles the issue of victimisation and the protection afforded by EU gender equality law.
