Legislating for Equality – a Multinational Collection of Non-Discrimination Norms is a compilation of constitutional provisions, penal code provisions and national laws on the prohibition of discrimination, racism and xenophobia.
The book, divided into four volumes, offers a useful compendium for governmental and non-governmental agencies, civil rights practitioners and researchers, outlining the legal framework in all UN Member States on matters relating to discrimination on the basis of race, religion and ethnicity, prohibition of hate crimes and hate speech, and the protection of minorities. Each volume also includes relevant international and regional treaties and ratification tables. The first volume on Europe was published in August 2012. In this second volume, updated to 31 November 2012, we turn our attention to the Americas: North America, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The various countries' legislation reflects the varying socio-economic developments and legal systems. During the past decade many American countries amended their constitutions and enacted laws protecting the rights of indigenous people.
