This chapter examines equality and non-discrimination in international human rights law. It discusses the provisions of human rights laws, conventions, and declarations designed to address problems related to sex, race, and religious discrimination. The chapter suggests a link between the concept of equality and that of non-discrimination, and that the rule of non-discrimination is basically the negative restatement of the principle of equality.
