Co-Organizer: Alexander Klose.

Anti-discrimination law is not just a hot topic in Germany, but also remains among the most controversial topics in contemporary U.S. legal debates. That this is so even in the U.S., with its long history of civil rights and anti-discrimination legislation, should surprise no one, given that the tension between freedom and equality is a central problem in virtually every human society. Still, despite this basic similarity, each society faces this challenge in a different way, and each legal culture affects how the legal norms are applied in practice.

For its “guest performance” at the FU-Berlin, BAR (i.e., the Berlin Working Group on Socio-legal Studies) has invited four international experts on anti-discrimination law: Prof. Dr. Susanne Baer (HU Berlin), Prof. Dr. Beate Rudolf (FU Berlin), Prof. David Oppenheimer (Golden Gate University, San Francisco) und Dr. Matthias Mahlmann (FU Berlin). Professor Helen Hartnell (Golden Gate University & DAAD Chair for Anglo-American Law, FU Berlin) will chair the round table, which will discuss the goals, strategies and impacts of antidiscrimination law in the U.S., in Germany, and in the European Union.
