Queering the Equality Act 2010

Please note: This event has been postponed to take place on 10th February 2021.

Wednesday 10th February 2020 | 3pm

The Equality Act 2010 is often criticised for its lack of intersectional analysis of discrimination: it views individuals in silos instead of taking account of the many ways in which an individual can be and is discriminated against. Borrowing the methodology of the seminal Feminist Jurisprudence Project, Donnchadh Greene, Alice Irving, and Jonathan Cooper will reimagine key Equality Act 2010 judgments from an intersectional queer perspective. This will include looking at the recent Bell v Tavistock judgment and an update on recent Strasbourg decisions and how they highlight the deficiencies in the current Equality Act 2010 provisions.

Chaired by Mark Henderson.
