This textbook offers comprehensive coverage of the Equality Act 2010, alongside other relevant UK law and European Union law. The book goes beyond the previous editions by presenting a critical and theoretical analysis of equality law that will equip the reader with an understanding of the enduring challenges that frame equality law and contemporary responses to those challenges. New content includes chapters on positive action and age, alongside treatment of discrimination and sex, race, disability, religion and belief, gender identity and sexual orientation.
Structured so as to be accessible to the student approaching discrimination law for the first time, the book is also sufficiently detailed and analytical to appeal to the well-informed reader, and to provide those engaged in research with a solid base for further independent study. For the undergraduate student studying discrimination law as a free-standing subject or as part of a wider course, the book provides a one-stop shop; furthermore, this edition is also a key core text for any postgraduate discrimination law course.
