Handbook on European non-discrimination law

This handbook — published jointly by the Court and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in 2010 — is the first comprehensive guide to European non-discrimination law. It develops the related European case-law and covers the context and background to discrimination categories and defences, the scope of the law (including who is protected) and the grounds protected, such as sex, disability, age, race and nationality. The case-law update of the handbook covers the period from July 2010 until December 2011.
