Equality and Discrimination Law in Australia: An Introduction explores four decades of anti-discrimination laws in Australia. Beth Gaze and Belinda Smith argue that effective laws protecting against and deterring discrimination are vital for a fair future, and emphasise the theoretical and social contexts that underpin this area of the law. The text is divided into three sections: the first addresses the social and conceptual context, history and framework of anti-discrimination laws; the second analyses the main elements of the law and the processes of enforcement; and the third explores broader avenues for pursuing equality beyond simply prohibiting discrimination. Written in a clear and concise style, Equality and Discrimination Law in Australia: An Introduction is a vital resource for students.

Part I: 1. Equality, discrimination, and law; 2. Historical background to anti-discrimination law; 3. Basic framework of legislation; Part II. Anti-Discrimination Legislation: 4. The attributes; 5. Prohibited conduct; 6. Areas; 7. Making rights effective: institutions, procedures and remedies; Part III: 8. Positive action; 9. Employment discrimination and the Fair Work Act; 10. Government action to advance equality: human rights and positive measures; 11. Equality rights into the future.
