Chapter Summary

The term systemic discrimination is an elastic concept in the way it has been used in legal and social science literature. In this chapter, the author’s use of the term systemic discrimination is limited to the context of employment discrimination. Systemic discrimination is indeed comprised of direct and indirect discrimination. For his purposes, he intends to use the term merely as a bridge-concept, i.e., as a short form of referring to a particular kind of discrimination which usually has certain characteristics. These characteristics make this kind of discrimination particularly difficult to address by way of complaint-based approaches to antidiscrimination. He presents a variety of cases and examples as a tool to help visualize the characteristics of systemic discrimination in employment and consequently to indicate what is necessary to respond to such discrimination.
