Discrimination Law: Theory and Context adopts a comparative and constitutional approach to the developing subject of discrimination in all its many forms. It provides a comprehensive exposition of anti-discrimination law, making comparisons between domestic law, EU law, the European Convention on Human Rights, and US, Canadian and South African law. It seeks to place the law in a broad context, by considering the history of anti-discrimination protections and the political and philosophical justifications which lie behind them.

The book follows a text and materials format. The materials are accompanied by extensive author commentary integrating both the theory and law. This book will be of interest to those studying and working in the fields of employment law, anti-discrimination law, civil liberties, human rights and constitutional law.
