Abstract

This chapter gives an overview of Icelandic legislation in the area of discrimination on the basis of religion or belief and identifies where Icelandic legislation is lacking in relation to the demands of Council Directive 2000/78/EC of 27 November 2000 establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation. Following this analysis, the chapter aims to suggest how future domestic non-discrimination legislation should be formulated from the perspective of European Union (EU) non-discrimination law and its background in human rights law and in light of the solutions opted for in non-discrimination legislation in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
