European Equality Law Network

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

Law reviews

The second 2018 issue of the European Equality Law Review provides an overview of the most recent case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and of the European Court of Human Rights in the period 1 January to 30 June 2018. There is also a section detailing the most recent developments in the same period in legislation, case law and policy in the 35 countries that participate in the Network.

It also includes five in-depth analytical articles. Marie Mercat-Bruns from the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, the CNRS and Sciences Po Law School, discusses the concept of systemic discrimination and its added value for thinking about gender inequality, comparing the concept of systemic gender discrimination in US, Canadian, French and EU law and case law. Katja Nebe from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and Sonja Mangold from the University of Bremen take a look at how transnational social dialogue and collective agreements can foster equal treatment at work in relation to issues such as work-life balance, precarious and atypical employment, professional diversity, participation rights of workers, and representation of disadvantaged groups in management decisions. Hélène Masse-Dessen and Raphaële Xenidis explore how Member States have used positive action in practice and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the concept, Stéphanie Hennette-Vauchez from the University Paris Nanterre looks at the legal framework pertaining to religious holidays in employment in Austria, France and Spain. Last but not least, Dieter Schindlauer, the Austrian non-discrimination expert of the network analyses how the concept of harassment in national anti-discrimination legislation can be used as a tool in fighting hate speech, comparing legislation in Austria, Bulgaria and Spain.
