Developing Anti-discrimination Law in Europe - The 27 EU Member States, Croatia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey compared. Czech Republic 2011 - Country report on measures to combat discrimination

Ten years ago a major and unprecedented evolution occurred in the European Union with the adoption in 2000 of two pieces of EU legislation in the field of anti-discrimination: the Racial Equality Directive (2000/43) and the Employment Equality Directive (2000/78). The implementation of these legal provisions in the national legal systems of the 27 Member States is described in a series of annually updated country reports produced by the European Network of Legal Experts in the Non-discrimination Field. In addition, the Network also includes candidate countries (Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey) and annually reports on their national legislation compared with the anti-discrimination standards set by the EU. This Network was established and is managed by the Human European Consultancy and the Migration Policy Group.

Country reports on measures to combat discrimination were drafted for the European Network of Legal Experts in the non-discrimination field (on the grounds of Race or Ethnic origin, Age, Disability, Religion or belief and Sexual Orientation), established and managed by the Migration Policy Group and Human European Consultancy and written by independent national experts in each Member State. The information is provided in response to questions set out in a template format which closely followed the provisions of the two Directives. The 30 reports cover national law, the establishment of enforcement mechanisms and the adoption of other measures. They contain information current as of 1 January 2011.

This Comparative Analysis, drafted by Isabelle Chopin and Thien Uyen Do (Migration Policy Group), compares the information set out in the 2010 country reports in a format mirroring that of the country reports themselves and draws some conclusions from the information contained in them.

The reports were produced as part of a study into measures to combat discrimination in the EU Member States, funded by the European Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity - PROGRESS (2007-2013).
