The European trade union anti-discrimination and diversity study has identified 130 significant or innovative initiatives among 280 anti-discrimination and pro-equality trade union initiatives in 34 European countries. The study maps out the geographical distribution of these initiatives and outlines the forms of discrimination they aim to combat. It also looks at the thematic areas covered and the role played by both legislation and equality bodies. 15 case studies were selected and are presented in details. Finally, gaps in the current action are identified and suggestions made for the future.
