The Foundations of the EU Legal Order
Chapter 3: Equality as a principle
This Chapter is about the role played by ‘equality as a principle’ within the EU constitutional legal order. This dimension of equality is rooted in international law, a part of the analysis that is done at the beginning of the Chapter. The analysis continues examining the different characteristics of equality as a principle, with particular reference to its justiciability and direct effect, as they emerge from the case law of the Court of Justice. The last part of the Chapter is devoted to the analysis of the sui generis and fundamental role played by equality as a principle in the EU constitutional legal order.
