Interpreting Discrimination Law Creatively
Statutory Discrimination Law in the UK, Canada and Australia
(Bloomsbury/Hart Publishing 2023)
This book explores the judiciary's role in achieving substantive equality utilising statutory discrimination law, and tackles the problem by exploring the idea that there needs to be a 'creative' interpretation of discrimination law to achieve substantive results. The author takes a comparative approach by considering the interpretation of statutory discrimination law in the UK, Canada and Australia.
The book argues that differences in the case law are explained by the way in which the appropriate role for the courts in rights review, norm elaboration and institutional competence is conceived in each jurisdiction.
Alice Taylor is Assistant Professor at Bond University Faculty of Law, Australia.
