Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law
As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.
Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law addresses discrimination issues both horizontally (discrimination law as an overarching framework) as well as vertically (specific topics within discrimination law – for example, age, sex, race, and disability – at national, regional, and international levels). Theoretical approaches as well as more pragmatic approaches, such as active measures, are also examined. Each quarterly issue comprises a single short monograph of 50-100 pages presenting state-of-the-art research and analysis of a selected subject.
Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law’s primary readership includes scholars, educators, students, policy decision makers, practitioners, and non-governmental organizations active in the field of discrimination law. The objective of the journal is to create a global approach to these issues, with the endeavor of publishing contributions by authors from around the world.
