EQUINET STUDY – The Sanctions Regime in Discrimination Cases and its Effects


The network of European equality bodies, Equinet, has commissioned Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights (LBI-GMR) expert Katrin Wladasch to carry out a study on the sanctions regime in discrimination cases and its effects. The study aimed to identify different types of sanctions as a tool for fostering the implementation of the principles of equal treatment and non-discrimination. A specific focus was given to the (potential) role of equality bodies in strengthening effectiveness, proportionality and dissuasiveness of sanctions’ regimes.
