Overview

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 analyzes 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mark Bell succeeds in making the book easy to read and accessible. The structure of the book is the secret; the chapters are relatively short, each discussing one subject and ending with a conclusion. At the end of the conclusion, the writer introduces the next issue and puts it in perspective, by using the previous chapters. There is no chance that the reader loses the overall structure or idea of the book. Bell writes plainly, clearly and concretely, he takes the reader by the hand."
—Wubbo Wierenga, Maastricht University, Maastrcht Journal of European and Comparative Law

"Among the major strengths of the book is the fact that it brings together the anti-discrimination legal framework and other policies addressing racial equality matters within one cover...The book's greatest asset, no doubt, is the very perspective it offers, and it is thus a great contribution to this field of study"
—Victoria Chege, University of Oldenberg, European Law Review
