Upcoming Event: The Pandemic as a litmus test for EU Anti-Discrimination Law – Debating Change (UCC and Online)

14 Mar 2024

This hybrid seminar, 'The Pandemic as a Litmus Test for EU Anti-Discrimination Law - Debating Change' will be held at 16:15, Thursday 14th March, 2024.

Location: North Wing Council Room, Main Campus, Cork and online via MS Teams



The global pandemic (COVID 19) has enhanced gender and racial/ethnic inequalities and entrenched social disadvantage for those considered disabled, as has been established widely (see, for example, this policy analysis for the Council of Europe, and this interactive map of the European Network Against Racism). By March 2024 we will have lived through the 4th winter flare-up, potentially resulting in further entrenching inequalities. It is time to move beyond condemning this. Accordingly, we ask whether EU anti-discrimination law can address the fall-out of socio-economic turbulences such as this one (also with a view to future cost of living crises and the fallout of war in Europe and elsewhere).

Dr Jule Mulder (University of Bristol) the keynote speaker will present her paper ''Changing work arrangements during the pandemic as a challenge for EU non-discrimination law'' -view abstract here: Dr Mulder Abstract - March 2024 event

Dr Mulder will be joined by Prof Dagmar Schiek (University College Dublin) as chair and Prof Mark Bell (Trinity College Dublin) as a discussant.
