Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the discussion of systemic discrimination in employment and the promotion of ethnic equality. Ethnic discrimination is prohibited in nearly every major international human rights treaty adopted. The very term ethnic discrimination conjures pictures of apartheid in South Africa, segregation in the southern part of the USA-societies where inequality was stifling and life-threatening. The notion of systemic discrimination in employment builds upon the concept of discrimination.

Keywords: ethnic discrimination; international human rights treaty
