We proudly present a publication of the Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry.


Legislating for Equality – a Multinational Collection of Non-Discrimination Norms, edited by Talia Naamat, Nina Osin and Dina Porat, was published by Brill Publishers and endorsed by UNESCO.

 
Divided into four volumes (according to continents), the book provides a legal model for combating discrimination through national legislation. The publication presents each country's legal framework and may thus illuminate problems in countries in need of legislative reform, and the "best practices" in others. Furthermore, as a comprehensive legal reference for comparing world-wide domestic laws, it provides the necessary basis for any future research or advocacy work for strengthening human rights worldwide.

 

The publication, once completed, will consist of a comprehensive collection of all UN member states' national legislation on discrimination on the basis of religion, race and ethnicity, prohibitions on incitement to hatred, violence and 'hate speech', and prohibition of Nazi symbols, genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

 

Volume I: Europe (2012, Netherlands) and Volume II: Americas (2013, Netherlands) can be ordered online via Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the Brill websites.
