The Academy of European Law (AEL) is organising the conference Equality Law in Europe: A New Generation – Using the CJEU Dataset at the European University Institute in Florence on 10-11 October 2019.

The conference is convened by Professor Claire Kilpatrick and forms part of a new AEL project titled: Equality Law in Europe: A New Generation, which aims to provide researchers and the general public with new tools to analyse recent developments in European equality law.

A central component of the project involves the development and maintenance of datasets that code all cases decided by the Court of Justice of the European Union involving allegations of discrimination on the grounds of gender, age, race, disability, religion, sexual orientation and ethnicity. The datasets cover all cases from 1971-2018, and will be continually updated as new cases are published by the Court. The conference will explore the ways in which this data can be used to further research issues relating to equality law in Europe.

Please take a look at the programme of the conference. We also invite you to learn more about our project and to download our open-access datasets and user guide.
