Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry

Legislation

The Kantor Center engages in worldwide comparative legal research in areas relevant to European Jewry.

These areas include the promotion of minority rights, equality and non-discrimination, prohibition of Antisemitism, racism, xenophobia; including hate crimes, hate speech, and Holocaust denial.

The Center has recently completed the first two volumes of the publication "Legislating for Equality" a Multinational Collection of Non-Discrimination Norms." Its "Volume I: Europe" was published in July 2012 in the Netherlands by the Brill Publishing House, under the imprint of Martinus Nijhoff Publishers.

 

 The second volume entitled "Volume II: Americas" appeared in May 2013. It was published as well in the Netherlands by the Brill Publishing House, under the imprint of Martinus Nijhoff Publishers.

The third volume of the series, Volume III: Africa, appeared in January 2016. It was published as well in the Netherlands by the Brill Publishing House, under the imprint of Martinus Nijhoff Publishers. 

The Center is now in the midst of research on the final volume of the series, Volume IV: Asia and Oceania which is planned for 2017.
