European Equality Law Review 2019 Call for Abstracts: European Gender Equality and Non-Discrimination Law

by | Jan 29, 2019

The European Equality Law Review now welcomes submissions for its 2019/1 and 2019/2 issues. The European Equality Law Review is an open-access journal published twice a year by the European Commission in collaboration with the European Network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination (see European Equality Law Review). It offers legal experts an independent, open-access platform to publish articles dealing with issues of gender equality and non-discrimination in relation to European law. Articles are submitted to peer-review within the Network’s editorial team at Utrecht University and Migration Policy Group and the Network’s executive committee of senior experts. The present call invites authors to submit their abstracts by 11 February 2019.

Instructions regarding submissions:

  1. The editorial team of the European Equality Law Review welcomes abstracts proposing articles on issues of gender equality and non-discrimination related to European law (EU law, European human rights law, European comparative law). For the next issue, we will be considering, in particular, articles dealing with:
  • Sexual harassment and gender-based harassment at work;
  • The direct horizontal effects of the charter of Fundamental Rights after Bauer in relation to gender equality;
  • The protection against victimization in EU gender equality law;
  • Gender equality and bias in algorithmic decision-making processes;
  • The legal standing of equality bodies in relation to non-discrimination law: a comparative analysis in three different Member States.
