Dates:
  • Tue 13 Oct 2020 17.30 - 19.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-10-13 17:30 2020-10-13 19:00 Europe/Paris Human and Fundamental Rights Working Group: Social origin as a discrimination ground under Article 14 ECHR

Presentation by Dr. Amalie Frese (Centre of Excellence for International Courts, University of Copenhagen)

 

Discussant: Matilda Merenmies (PhD researcher, EUI)

  

Abstract

Dr. Amalie Frese presents the role of social origin as a protected ground under the prohibition of discrimination in Article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The hypothesis is that social origin is not used in the European Court of Human Rights’ case law on Article 14. This absence is discussed and some explanations are suggested for the Court’s approach to formal equality as an underlying principle for its adjudication of antidiscrimination cases.

 

 

Dr. Amalie Frese holds a doctoral degree in law from the Faculty of Law at the University of Copenhagen, where she was affiliated with the Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts), and from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. In her PhD thesis, Dr. Frese investigated the CJEU’s and the ECtHR’s decision-making practices in the area of anti-discrimination law. Dr. Frese has been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Law, University of Vienna, with The Carlsberg Foundation’s Internationalisation Grant, a Junior Core Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study at the Central European University, and had the Danish Research Council’s postdoctoral internationalisation grant at the European University Institute. Dr. Frese’s current research focuses on the challenges of economic inequality and poverty for social law and fundamental rights.
