This is the second 2015 issue of the European Equality Law Review. It provides an overview of the latest legislative, policy, and case-law developments from 1 January to 31 July 2015 in the fields of anti-discrimination and gender equality in the 35 countries that participate in the European Equality Law Network. These are the 28 Member States of the EU; the EFTA countries of Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway; and the candidate countries of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey.

The Law Review also contains an overview of anti-discrimination and gender equality case-law from the CJEU and the ECtHR within the same time-frame, and contains four in-depth analytical articles on topics of relevance.

+ Catharine Barnard and Alysia Blackham analyse the role played by gender equality law in matters of self-employment in the EU Member States
+ Margarita Ilieva addresses the importance of procedural accommodation in the context of access to justice for persons with mental disabilities.
+ Marjolein van den Brink and Jet Tigchelaar examine in their article the fast-developing subject of sex registration and gender identity.
