This issue opens with four in-depth articles.

  • The first article, by equality and non-discrimination consultant Niall Crowley, explores the independent assistance competences of equality bodies, with a particular focus on the Belgian, Croatian and Estonian equality bodies.
  • The second article, by Ulrike Spangenberg from the German Institute for Gender-Equality-Based Practices and Strategies, examines tax policies in the EU from a gender equality perspective.
  • The third article, by Elaine Dewhurst of the University of Manchester and coordinator for the ground of age for the EELN, analyses the existing protections against discrimination for the self-employed within EU law and the national law of Germany, Ireland and Sweden.
  • The final article is authored by Jean Jacqmain, former gender equality expert for Belgium for the EELN, and Nathalie Wuiame, current gender equality expert for Belgium for the EELN. The article evaluates, from a gender equality perspective, two recently adopted directives concerning transparency, EU Directive 2019/1152 and EU Directive 2019/1937.

Similar to previous issues of this publication, the following section provides an overview of the relevant case law of the Court of Justice of the EU and of the European Court of Human Rights. The final section on national developments contains brief summaries of the most important developments in legislation, case law and policy at the national level in the 36 countries covered by the network.
