Unpaid Annotation
Homosexuality: A European Community Issue is a groundbreaking study of the situation of lesbians & gay men in the European Community & how this will be affected by the evolution of the EC into the European Union. It provides a cogent analysis of the social, legal & economic discrimination against homosexual men & women, their organisations & businesses. Twelve authors from different academic backgrounds investigate if, where, & how the European Community institutions are competent to combat discrimination against lesbians & gay men. The authors deal extensively with many policy areas in which the EC plays a prominent role, such as sex equality, free movement of persons, goods & services, employment & family policy. Homosexuality: A European Community Issue is the first comprehensive study into this rapidly developing area of policy making. This eminently readable volume will serve as an indispensable reference book for academics, activists & policy makers for many years to come. An index of relevant legislation, case-law & extensive cross-referencing guarantee it will be of great practical use to anyone interested in lesbian & gay rights in the European Community.
