Written by a leading human rights and employment and practitioner, the new edition of Monaghan on Equality Law combines a comprehensive survey of UK equality law with an analytical critique of the legal framework and the concepts that underpin it. The text provides practical guidance on equality law as it applies to specific practice areas including employment, goods and services, housing, education, transport, and public law. It covers the history of equality law, domestically, regionally, and internationally. It also considers the social and political context for equality. It offers a detailed exploration of the domestic law, as well as reviewing the main EU and international human rights instruments addressing discrimination.

This book reviews the history of the Equality Act and its impact on the landscape of this area of law. It examines the innovative provisions introduced by the Act, including provisions addressing 'multiple' discrimination and statutory equality duties covering all protected grounds, and also considers the decisions arising from the case law emerging since the publication of the previous edition.

The text also covers new EU law addressing discrimination outside those areas presently and historically addressed by EU law, and a number of UN initiatives directed at addressing inequality and discrimination.
