These two books deal with two different problems concerning the principles of discrimination and equality. Vandenhole, after analysis of all United Nations (UN) committees' decisions on non-discrimination and equality, sheds a sharp light on the problem of divergence in interpretation of these principles. Craig argues that the traditional complaint-based anti-discrimination laws are inherently inadequate to combat systemic ethnic discrimination in employment and examines an alternative regime: the imposition of proactive obligations on employers to promote equality at the workplace. An intriguing question raised by reading both books is whether imposing proactive obligations could be a panacea to other forms of discrimination as well, as described in Vandenhole's book.
