An international journal of value and interest to academic lawyers, practitioners, campaigning groups, organisations and policy makers.

The International Journal of Discrimination and the Law encompasses wide range of areas of discrimination including racism and sex discrimination, the treatment of asylum-seekers and refugees, issues of immigration and nationality, discrimination on grounds disability, sexual or political orientation, age and ill-health, in relation to access to employment, housing, education and other services. The provisions and operation of anti-discrimination law and problems with existing provisions and procedures are critically examined. Reviews of recent literature and decisions from a number of jurisdictions and reports and advance information on major conferences are regularly published.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
