ENAR factsheet on multiple discrimination

The ENAR European Network Against Racism logo.

In July 2011, the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) published ‘The legal implications of multiple discrimination’ by Gay Moon, Equality Fellow, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.

This fact sheet aims to set out what is meant by multiple discrimination; what the UN and the European Union have to say about it; how different European Member States have introduced it into their legislation; how Europe could introduce pan-European provisions and how the concept of multiple discrimination has influenced policy responses in civil society.

This factsheet, as a follow-up to ENAR’s first factsheet on multiple discrimination (Factsheet 33), aims to explain multiple discrimination with a view to enhancing the capacity of ENAR members to develop mechanisms to address, in their work, the intersection between racism and other forms of discrimination.
