Racism and equality in the European Union

£29.99

Product description

The European Union has committed itself to combating racism as a general objective of law and policy. EU legislation requires Member States to introduce laws prohibiting racial discrimination in many aspects of everyday life, including employment, education, healthcare, and housing. Alongside legislation requiring action at national level, the EU institutions have also made periodic commitments to 'mainstream' racial equality: taking anti-racism objectives into account within all areas of EU law and policy. This book analyses the extent to which the objectives of combating racism and promoting ethnic equality have been effectively mainstreamed throughout a wide range of EU policy fields. It begins by considering what combating racism means in the contemporary context of the enlarged EU. Bell explores what mainstreaming ethnic equality objectives entails, and whether the priorities and instruments differ from those adopted in the earlier mainstreaming of gender equality, or those used on other discrimination grounds. The second part of the book examines the extent to which EU law and policy objectives have, in practice, been integrated, exploring the effects in the key areas of employment, social inclusion (including education, health and housing), immigration, and criminal law. This hard back book (published in 2008) is in good condition with some small scratches to and creasing to the top of the dust sheet as well as small marks on its back from where a price label has been removed. The hard cover is in good condition apart from some very minor creasing to the top and bottom of the spine from where it has been stored. The pages are in very good condition and appear unread. A previous price (£40.00) on the inside cover page has been written in pencil and not rubbed out properly so is still noticeable.
