Making Anti-Racial Discrimination Law examines the evolution of
anti-racial discrimination law from a socio-legal perspective.
Taking a comparative and interdisciplinary approach, the book does
not simply look at race and society or race and law but brings
these areas together by drawing out the tension in the process, in
different countries, by which race becomes a policy issue which is
subsequently regulated by law. Moving beyond traditional social
movement theory to include the extreme right wing as a social
actor, the study identifies the role of extreme right wing
confrontation in agenda setting and law-making, a feature often
neglected in studies of social action. In so doing, it identifies
the influence of both the extreme right and liberalism on
anti-racial discrimination law. Focusing primarily on Great Britain
and Germany, the book also demonstrates how national politics feeds
into EU policy and identifies some of the challenges in creating a
high and uniform level of protection against racial discrimination
throughout the EU.
Using primary archival materials from Germany and the UK, the
empirical richness of this book constitutes a valuable contribution
to the field of anti-racial discrimination law, at both
undergraduate and postgraduate level. The book will interest
specialists and academics in law, sociology and political science
as well as non-specialists, who will find this study stimulating
and useful to expand their knowledge of anti-racial discrimination
law or pursue teaching goals, policy objectives and reform
