Discrimination is a new work, which adopts a comparative and constitutional approach to the developing subject of discrimination in all its many forms. It provides a comprehensive exposition of anti-discrimination law, making comparisons between domestic law, EU law, the European Convention on Human Rights, and US, Canadian and South African law. It seeks to place the law in a broad context, by considering the history of anti-discrimination protections and the political and philosophical justifications which lie behind them.

The book follows a text and materials format. The materials are accompanied by extensive author commentary integrating both the theory and law.
