• Religion and belief

    Professor Vickers’ research on religious equality has assisted conceptual understanding and capacity-building nationally and within the European Union, underpinning legal challenges to government equality legislation. 

    She authored (with Professor Edge) a review of equality and human rights law relating to religion or belief for the Equality and Human Rights Commission in 2015. She also authored “Religion and Belief in Employment – The EU Law” a substantial report commissioned by the European Network of Legal Experts in the non-discrimination field for the European Commission.

    Professor Vickers is the UK country expert for the European Equality Law Network, the Network of Legal Experts in the Non-discrimination Field, which provides the European Commission with independent advice on all the grounds of discrimination covered by the EU Equality Directives.
