GREEN PAPER - Equality and non-discrimination in an enlarged European Union
Five years ago, the European Union was given new powers to tackle discrimination on grounds of sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, age, disability and sexual orientation.
This Green Paper takes stock of what the EU has done during the last five years to combat discrimination and to promote equal treatment. It looks at how these initiatives relate to other policy developments at European and international levels. It examines new challenges that have emerged in recent years, including those linked to the enlargement of the EU. It assesses the implications of this changing context for policy development in the field of non-discrimination and equal treatment.
