Academy of European Law (ERA)
Current Reflections on EU Anti-Discrimination Law, a Seminar for university professors and law lecturers
1 - 2 June 2015, Trier
Since 2003 ERA has organised a series of seminars devoted to the two European anti-discrimination directives adopted under Article 19 TFEU every year. Directive 2000/78 prohibits all forms of discrimination in employment and occupation based on religion or belief, disability, age and sexual orientation. Directive 2000/43 goes further and prohibits all forms of discrimination based on race or ethnic origin, not only in the employment area but also in education, social protection and access to goods and services.
This event – addressed to university professors and law lecturers – will present current reflections by academic experts on the state of play and future development of EU anti-discrimination law.
• Commission update on current EU equality initiatives
• Contribution of the Charter to EU quality case law
• Updates on the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union on the different protected grounds
Who should attend?
University professors and law lecturers from the EU and those candidate countries and EEA/EFTA countries which have decided to participate in the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme.
There is no seminar fee. Participation is on selection. Selected participants will receive a significant contribution to their travel and accommodation costs
