    Description

    This course focuses on anti-discrimination law from a European perspective. While the course centers on the relevant anti-discrimination directives of the European Union, students will also learn about their interrelationship with anti-discrimination law under the European Convention on Human Rights as well as international human rights law protecting special groups from discrimination such as women, children or persons with disabilities.

    The course will treat the different forms of discrimination (direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and instructions to discriminate as well as related acts such as hate speech or gender-based violence) and will take a closer look at some of the protected grounds like gender, “race”, religion, age, sexual orientation or disability. Thematic focuses will lie on the different regulatory spheres of anti-discrimination law such as employment or access to goods and services, access to justice, welfare, as well as current discussions on diverse topics such as racial profiling, affirmative action or gender quota.

    Attention: The course takes place on Wednesdays from 11h15 to 14h00 (without lunch break).

    Training objectives

    • Students are familiar with the European Union anti-discrimination directives as well as with their foundations in European and international human rights law.
