Non-Discrimination in European Private Law

Ed. by Reiner Schulze

The rapid expansion of non-discrimination provisions through EU legislation and court decisions gives rise to the need to determine the foundations, objectives and limitations of protection against discrimination in relation to freedom of contract. This new challenge in the field of European private law may only be overcome through a discussion of the different legal traditions in Europe. Such a discussion is presented in this volume by legal scholars from a number of European nations.
