Intersektionelle Diskriminierung und EU-Recht – Eine kritische Reflexion

Translated title of the contribution: Intersectional Discrimination in EU Law - a critical reflection

Dagmar Schiek, Jule Mulder

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter introduces the concept of intersectionality in its relevance for anti-discrimination law. It illustrates the use (or non-use) of this concept by the Court of Justice, and provides examples of case law ignoring intersectional inequalities. Finally, it proposes to re-frame and re-focus EU anti-discrimination law around nodes of inequalities as a way to better address intersectional inequalities.
