Discussing the fundamental role played by equality and non-discrimination in the EU legal order, this insightful book explores the positive and negative elements that have contributed to the consolidation of the process of EU legal integration.

Providing an in-depth analysis of the three key dimensions of equality in the EU – equality as a value, equality as a principle and equality as a right – this incisive book investigates the place and scope of equality within the founding values of the EU. It does this by examining the use of the principle of equality in the case-law of the Court of Justice, as well as the rights conferred on individuals via equality in secondary legislation, and the interaction between equality in the Charter of Fundamental Rights and as a general principle of EU law.

Presenting an up-to-date analysis of the role played by equality in blending the economic and social elements of EU legal integration, Equality and Non-Discrimination in the EU will be an important read for scholars and students of EU and constitutional law, as well as practitioners and EU officials.
Critical Acclaim
‘Equality is the core concept of justice, discrimination is opposed to the rule of law. Giovanni Zaccaroni's book is a most valuable key to understanding the complexity and broadness of equality as a concept in EU law and all ways the EU opposes discrimination.’
– Matthias Ruffert, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany
