Abstract

This essay evaluates implementation in the UK in recent years of EU provisions on discriminatory harassment. From a technical point of view, aspects of the new law are vulnerable to judicial review challenges of various kinds. The correct interpretation of important elements is also unclear. From a principled perspective, these doctrinal complexities are liable to obscure the most important underlying issues.
