Conference presentation by Christa Tobler on EU anti-discrimination law
On April 19, 2018, the University of Vienna organized an international conference on the topic of equality bodies.
The reason for this was threefold 1) the fact that EU law has required the establishment of such offices for 15 years, 2) the further fact that there has already been an equal treatment attorney in Austria for 27 years, and finally 3) the fact that the first head of this office, Dr. Ingrid Nikolay-Leitner, is retiring this spring. The conference therefor celebrated her many years of work and commitment.
Christa Tobler, Professor of European Law at the Universities of Basel (Switzerland) and Leiden, gave a lecture on "Sex Discrimination - A starting Point for Anti-discrimination Law".
