DISCRIMINATION LAW:THEORY & CONTEXT
Discrimination Law: Theory and Context provides a comprehensive and in-depth account of contemporary discrimination law in England and Wales, providing a critical overview of the subject along with analysis of the law. The work utilises the popular text and materials approach to bring together a stimulating collection of statutes, cases, extracts from academic books and articles, policy papers and government publications. The work addresses the subject from a human rights and EU law perspective, providing analysis of the way in which EU and domestic discrimination law has been influenced by constitutional and human rights standards. The work includes international material, as well as comparisons with other jurisdictions such as the US, Canada, South Africa and Australia. Discrimination Law: Theory and Context provides detailed discussion of recent key case law and legislative developments in disability and age discrimination including the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 and contains all other relevant legislation such as the Civil Partnership Act 2004. In addition, the work analyses the Discrimination Law Review 2007 which offers recommendations about future law reform.
