  • Intersectional discrimination in EU gender equality and non-discrimination lawpdf(749 kB)
    It is increasingly recognised that discrimination can occur on the basis of more than one ground. The central problem identified by the notion of intersectional discrimination is how to render visible and properly remedy the wrongs of those who are multiply disadvantaged. In the course of this thematic report, author Sandra Fredman explores the challenges posed by intersectionality in relation to EU law. The report analyses the ways in which European states deal with multiple discrimination and intersectionality, drawing on responses by national experts from all the EU member States, as well as the candidate and EFTA countries. The report considers the potential within existing EU anti-discrimination law to incorporate an intersectional approach, whether intersectional experiences can be addressed within EU law and the extent to which existing jurisprudence from the Court of Justice might be understood as reflecting intersectionality. In the final chapter of the report, Fredman discusses how an intersectional approach to equality and non-discrimination can be adopted trough proactive measures and mainstreaming.
