Das Berliner Antidiskriminierungsgesetz

Translated title of the contribution: The Berlin Anti-discrimination Act

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article evaluates one of the key legislative projects of the so-called "violet senate" of Berlin - i.e. the state's first government with as many male as female senators. The piece of legislation aimed to promote equal treatment for women in employment generally, in the public service and private sector alike. Due to limitations of competences of states in the Federal Republic of Germany, the bulk of the legislation introduces positiv action in the public sector only. However, the act also applied to companies owned by the land of Berlin, and also entailed the first ever provisions on "social procurement" to promote gender equality. The author was the lead public employee in drafting the legislation.
