To effectively tackle discrimination, it is important to understand the effects of the EU's equal treatment legislation on the ground(s) of discrimination. Consequently, information on the implementation of the two anti-discrimination Directives into national law is as important as analysing their impact in practice - including any related case law.
The European Commission therefore set up a network of legal experts in anti-discrimination to support its work by providing independent information and advice on relevant developments in the Member States. The network is managed by Human European Consultancy and the Migration Policy Group (MPG) on behalf of the European Commission.
On this website the network publishes information on legal developments in the non-discrimination field both at Member State and at European level. The relevant information can be accessed from the law pages (European legislation, national legislation and selected case law) and the country pages. An advanced search menu gives the option to select by country, discrimination ground, field of application or a combination of these criteria.
