This course covers the EU law prohibitions on discrimination on grounds of e.g. sex, race, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, age and disability. Students learn the meaning and definition of discrimination, the scope of the prohibition, evidential requirements, and the extent to which positive action in favour of underrepresented groups is permitted or required. Current issues such as transgender rights, headscarf bans, and algorithmic discrimination are addressed.

This law is contained in a series of EU directives, and in the case law of the European Court of Justice. It is directly applicable in national courts, and provides the framework for national non-discrimination law in these fields. It is therefore relevant for national labour law and social law students, as well as EU law students.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
