This volume on legal responses to racial and ethnic discrimination in Europe examines the current state of anti-discrimination law and theory and explores the failings of theoretical principles to affect practical change on the ground. The work is divided into three sections covering the current legal framework for anti-discrimination policies, current practical application of anti-discrimination law, and proposals for increasing the efficacy of enforcement efforts. Chapters address specific topics such as theoretical perspectives of discrimination and equality, causes of discrimination, current international human rights law, European Union law, and policy frameworks for rethinking the response to de facto discrimination. Makkonen is a legal scholar with extensive experience in discrimination issues.
