This monograph explores some of the conceptual questions which underpin the legal disputes which arise in relation to equality and discrimination.

Among these questions are the meaning of 'equality' as a legal concept and its relationship to the principle of non-discrimination; symmetrical and asymmetrical approaches to equality/ non-discrimination; the role of comparators in discrimination/equality analysis; the selection of protected characteristics and the proper sphere of statutory and constitutional protections; and the scope for and regulation of potential conflicts between protected grounds.

The author engages with domestic, EU and ECHR caselaw as well as with wider international approaches. She also addresses a number of contemporary issues for discrimination/equality law including the problem of racial profiling and the regulation of multiple discrimination.

Subjects:
Human Rights and Civil Liberties, Discrimination Law
