Written by a leading human rights and employment and practitioner, the new edition of Monaghan on Equality Law combines a comprehensive survey of UK equality law with an analytical critique of the legal framework and the concepts that underpin it. The text provides practical guidance on equality law as it applies to specific practice areas including employment, goods and services, housing, education, transport, and public law. It covers the history of equality law, domestically, regionally, and internationally. It also considers the social and political context for equality. It offers a detailed exploration of the domestic law, as well as reviewing the main EU and international human rights instruments addressing discrimination. 

This book reviews the history of the Equality Act and its impact on the landscape of this area of law. It examines the innovative provisions introduced by the Act, including provisions addressing 'multiple' discrimination and statutory equality duties covering all protected grounds, and also considers the decisions arising from the case law emerging since the publication of the previous edition. The text also covers new EU law addressing discrimination outside those areas presently and historically addressed by EU law, and a number of UN initiatives directed at addressing inequality and discrimination. Readership: Solicitors and barristers specializing in discrimination and equality law, in areas such as employment, human rights, public law, housing, education, immigration and civil actions against the police and other state agencies; academics and policy makers. 

Review(s) from previous edition

"'This book is a thorough and detailed exposition of the subject that will repay many return visits. The fluid nature of equality law means that it is always hard to pin down and difficult to know when to stop. For equality law practitioners and academics alike it will provide a significant source of information and ideas that will be a welcome addition to equality library.' - Gay Moon, Head of the Equality Project, JUSTICE
