This workshop forms the meeting of different approaches to the object of discrimination and anti-discrimination: on the one hand the studies of policies and social norms of prejudice, stereotypes, nationalism, race, gender etc. and on the other hand the studies of legal rules that aim to remedy these social norms as anti-discrimination strategies. By bringing together CEU scholars who are experts in either of these two dimensions of the study of discrimination, the aim is to open a discussion of the underlying structures of discrimination as a social and political practice and the effectiveness of the legal instruments in domestic and international law. The overall inquiry of the workshop is what the added value and learning output is from combining different disciplines’ approach to discrimination and structural disadvantage and the aim is to foster a shared state-of-the-art of research into discrimination as a social and legal object of inquiry. Researchers from CEU’s School of Public Policy, Department of Legal studies, Department of Gender studies, Center for Policy Studies, Nationalism Studies Program and Institute for Advanced Study present their work, all from different perspectives and with different case studies followed by a discussion.
