Chapter Summary

This chapter assesses what key elements of proactive obligation regimes work, appear to work, or at least appear to be capable of addressing systemic ethnic discrimination in employment. It also focuses on the characteristics of a rational government policy in addressing systemic ethnic discrimination in employment. The author has made the following inquiries: the specificity of the obligations and its impact on the ability to assess compliance; the institutional guidance provided to employers; the institutional monitoring of compliance and the application of regulatory pressure; and the sanctions for non-compliance. The author tries to demystify the work of promoting ethnic equality at the workplace, highlighting it as a job to be done just as all other jobs.

Keywords: contract-based regimes; employment; ethnic equality; proactive obligation regimes; rational government policy; statutory-based regimes; systemic ethnic discrimination; workplace
