Abstract

In the European Union, the need to move from the traditional principle of formal equality to a strategy pursuing substantive equality has been largely recognised in practice. New EU anti-discrimination legislation, which followed the amendments of Article 13 of the Amsterdam Treaty, has enhanced the debate on how to achieve the substantive equality of the most marginalised people. It goes without saying that equal opportunities of the Roma minority belong among the priorities of an enlarged Europe. Since 2000, the concept of “multiple discrimination” has started appearing in the political debate and legal documents of the EU, but no definition or regulation has been provided so far. Therefore, scholars from a wide range of disciplines and law practitioners have been trying to fill the conceptual gap concerning multiple discrimination.
