Abstract:     
This article examines the role (if any) of law in the promotion and protection of equality. It frames its analysis against the backdrop of recent equality developments and proposals in the context of Northern Ireland. Our particular purpose is to address the question: are equality mainstreaming and the constitutionalisation of socio-economic rights viable tools to address inequality? These two legal tools are recognised as forming only parts, albeit highly important parts, of a bigger equality jigsaw. Constraints of space mitigate against examination of the other pieces of the jigsaw in this article
