Race and Ethnic Origin

Relevant EU Directive:

Directive 2000/43/EC.

EU and international legal documents use the notion of racial discrimination while explicitly rejecting the notion of separate human races. The prohibition of discrimination based on racial or ethnic origin can also cover discrimination based on colour, descent or national origin.

Example:

Examples can include the refusal of an employer to hire a Roma person or the refusal of entry to a club for a black person.
