Links between migration and discrimination

3917-links-between-migration-and-discrimination-google-chromeThe European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination has published a new report, titled Links between migration and discrimination – A legal analysis of the situation in EU Member States, and authored by Olivier de Schutter. The report is an update of a previous report initially published in 2009, and aims to describe the links between nationality and protection from discrimination under EU and international law as well as in the domestic legal systems of EU Member States. Against the background of the current context, the purpose of the report is to identify whether third-country nationals, once they enter the EU, are protected from discrimination on grounds of nationality on the one hand and on grounds of race, ethnic origin or religion in situations where nationality is used as a proxy for these grounds, on the other. It provides a timely and highly relevant comparative analysis of legislation and practice across the EU.
