Description/Abstract

This article examines the adoption of EC directives derived from Article 13 of the Treaty of Amsterdam (1997). It argues that these directives are party to important changes in established legal responses to racial and religious anti-discrimination in Britain. It maps the interaction of specific British approaches and generic EC directives, and assesses what broader implications these directives may be tied to politically, as well as legally, with respect to Human Rights discourses, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), and a Single Equalities Act (SEA). The article also reflects on whether Britain’s approaches are being ‘Europeanised’.
