The globalization process has foregrounded ethnic discrimination as an increasingly important area of law around the world. Allowing a better understanding of the issue of ethnic discrimination and inequality, this book offers a comparative analysis of legislation impacting ethnic equality in various Anglophone countries. It demonstrates that it is possible to achieve equality at both national and international levels. A compelling historical analysis of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union Treaty is provided together with a detailed examination of diversity and the law. The book will interest practitioners and others interested in ethnic legal issues.
'In her work Culture Clash, Anne-Marie Mooney Cotter has produced an excellently researched and thorough examination of the legal background to ethnic discrimination. Ms Cotter's work is a must for all practitioners and other persons interested in the legal issues surrounding ethnic groups as the world becomes more and more diverse, and cultures must learn to live side by side with one another.' Lynn Roy, Concordia University, Canada 'Culture Clash explores ethnic discrimination in Australia/New Zealand, Africa/South Africa, North America, and Europe (Ireland and the UK), while at the same time examining the two most important trade deals the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union Treaties. This book is the product of considerable research and learning, and has been written with Dr. Cotter's customary attention to detail.' Laurence Nolan, Howard University School of Law, USA
