The Right To Equality In European Human Rights Law from the Author: Charilaos Nikolaidis. A right to equality and non-discrimination is widely seen as fundamental in democratic legal systems. But failure to identify the human interest that equality aims to uphold reinforces the argument of those who attack it as morally empty or unsubstantiated and weakens its status as a fundamental human right. This book argues that an understanding of the human interest which equality aims to uphold is feasible within the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) and the European Court of Justice (ECJ). In comparing the evolution of the prohibition of discrimination in the case-law of both Courts, Charilaos Nikolaidis demonstrates that conceptual convergence within the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the EU on the issue of equality is not as far as it might appear initially. While the two bodies of equality law are extremely divergent as to the requirements they impose, their interpretation by the international judiciary might be properly analysed under a common light to emphasise the substantive dimension of equality in European Human Rights law. The book will be of great use and interest to scholars and students of human rights, discrimination law, and European politics.

The Principle Of Equality In European Taxation from the Author: Gerard Theodora Karel Meussen. The principles of equality and non-discrimination are a cornerstone of constitutional law and of international and European human rights law, and there is increasing recognition of the fact that any system of taxation must comply with them. This book examines how these principles influence the tax regimes of eight European jurisdictions. The authors examine the impact of the equality and non-discrimination principles on tax law and policy, with particular reference to their application in national courts and the European Court of Human Rights. The discussion focuses on an individual's right to appeal to the courts, the procedures for judicial review, and the core question of whether objective and reasonable justification exists for instances of unequal treatment of equal cases. This work will be of value to practitioners, policymakers, legislators, judges and researchers working in the field of taxation and human rights.

Workplace Equality In Europe from the Author: Dr Anna Paraskevopoulou. Drawing on data from a Europe wide project, together with existing data on equality and diversity initiatives, this book explores the work of trade unions in supporting equality and anti-discrimination policies across Europe and, in particular, the processes and collaborations involved in incorporating equality and diversity policies into trade union agendas. It considers theoretical issues of equality and diversity, the role of EU legislation, multiple discrimination and exclusion and disadvantage in the labour market in relation to the role of trade unions, and addresses central questions about the actions and challenges faced by trade unions in promoting equality in the workplace and in implementing anti-discrimination policies at local, national and European levels.
