German Law Journal Coverage of Anti-Discrimination Law
The German Law Journal is proud to publish in the August 2016 issue Barbara Havelková’s article “Resistance to Anti-Discrimination Law in Central and Eastern Europe–a Post-Communist Legacy?” It is a thoughtful engagement with the way society, history and culture interact with the law.
Anti-discrimination protections and the justice such legal regimes promise are also a fundamental part of our normative agenda. Jule Mulder, one of our editors, is an expert in the field. She is expecting the publication of a new book on the subject early next year.
Over the years we have given these issues a lot of attention, including a remarkable debate on Germany’s reluctant implementation of the EU’s anti-discrimination directive, which we published in the journal’s first years:
· Joyce Marie Mushaben, “Women Between a Rock and a Hard Place: State Neutrality vs. EU Anti-Discrimination Mandates in the German Headscarf Debate” (2013)
· Susanne Hoentzsch, “Discrimination in Individual-Related Employment – A View from Europe and Germany to Canada, analysing the Requirements and the Background of the European Anti-Discrimination Directives” (2006)
· Florian Stork, “Comments on the Draft of the New German Private Law Anti-Discrimination Act : Implementing Directives 2000/43/EC and 2004/113/EC in German Private Law” (2005)
