Howard, Erica ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0003-0848-5033 (2022) Equality as an EU value. In: Oxford Encyclopedia of EU Law. Garben, Sacha and Gormley, Laurence, eds. Oxford University Press, Oxford. e-ISBN 9780191877025. [Book Section]


Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union declares that equality is one of the founding values of the European Union. Article 3 then declares that the promotion of these values is one of the aims of the EU. Equality and non-discrimination are thus firmly placed at the heart of the EU legal order and should play a role in everything the EU institutions do. This entry analyses what equality as an EU value means and why it is at the heart of the EU legal order.
