Moving from an analysis of the US literature on public interest law, on law and social change and law and social movements, the research explores how, under what conditions and with what consequences, legal actors have relied on the prohibition of discrimination to challenge nationality related differences of treatment in the Italian context. It will analyse how the implementation of the Racial Equality Directive and the equal treatment clauses provided under EU law with regard to specific categories of TCNs have effected the opportunities for effective enforcement of the prohibition of discrimination at the national level and investigate the extent to which such opportunities have shaped legal strategies.

Abstract

Moving from an analysis of the US literature on public interest law, on law and social change and law and social movements, the research explores how, under what conditions and with what consequences, legal actors have relied on the prohibition of discrimination to challenge nationality related differences of treatment in the Italian context. It will analyse how the implementation of the Racial Equality Directive and the equal treatment clauses provided under EU law with regard to specific categories of TCNs have effected the opportunities for effective enforcement of the prohibition of discrimination at the national level and investigate the extent to which such opportunities have shaped legal strategies. Finally the research will assess the impact of litigation in terms of achieving equal rights in courts and generating policy response.
