About Anti-Discrimination-Law-Review

The journal is a scholarly independent and non-partisan publication. It does not promote any particular ideology or interests of any institutions, be they public or private bodies, as regards equality issues. It is concerned mostly with the existing legal regulations, proposed legislation or constitutional amendments, as well as with case law. The journal also publishes social sciences research (e.g. in political sciences, international relations, anthropology), as long as it is interdisciplinary and has a significant connection with existing or planned legal regulations or jurisprudence.

The journal is published in English.

Its Editorial Board consists of leading Polish scholars, who have both academic and practical experience in this field of law, including the Editor-in-chief Professor Andrzej Wróbel – the head of the Department of European Law at the Institute of Law Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences and judge of the Constitutional Court of Poland. However, the sphere of interest of the journal is not limited to Poland or Europe. Through its international advisory board, through its selection of contributors and reviewers, the journal aims at participating in the worldwide discussion concerning equality law and examining the impact of global trends in this field.

The journal is the forum for discussion on current developments in the field of equality and anti-discrimination law. It focuses, in particular, on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union, national courts’ resolutions to discrimination-related issues, and the impact of supranational institutions on national bodies. The main subject-matters covered in the journal vary depending on the current developments in legal scholarship and jurisprudence. At present, the journal focuses especially on the horizontal effect of the principle of equality and legal instruments aimed at ensuring thereof, problems related to equal treatment of persons with disabilities, the interrelations between the principle of equality and freedom of religion in modern multicultural democratic society and the understanding of the principle of equality in context of social and economic rights.

The journal is addressed to scholars and practitioners – judges, prosecutors, attorneys, civil society activists, policy-makers and governmental officials (including members of equality bodies and ombudsperson institutions). It will be published by Wolters Kluwer SA – the Polish branch of Wolters Kluwer in cooperation with the Institute of Law Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The Anti-Discrimination Law Review is a legal journal, publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed research on global, European and national developments in the field of anti-discrimination and equality law. The journal is committed to deepening the knowledge of anti-discrimination and equality law; pondering theoretical understanding of different legal concepts employed in this discipline of law as well as dealing with methodological approaches applied in legislation and jurisprudence. It provides space for refinement of the key ideas in this still emerging and developing field of law.
