At the end of March 2019, the Jean Monnet Chair for European Integration, Antidiscrimination, Human Rights and Diversity organised an international and interdisciplinary conference at the European Academy in Otzenhausen on “The European Union as Protector and Promoter of Equality” which was co-funded by the German Research Association (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). A detailed conference report has just been published as a Saar Expert Paper and can be accessed here. The papers that were presented will be published in a conference volume in early 2020.
