France and the Netherlands: Toward Convergence?

Abstract : This chapter explores resistance to non-discrimination law by analyzing the political issues raised by tracking the borders of the political “us.” Through the prism of a comparative analysis of France and the Netherlands, we investigate convergence and divergence surrounding the content and implementation of non-discrimination law. We thus examine the issues involved in the struggle against discrimination in two “integration models”: France, which is associated with a culture of so-called “republican” integration but which has recently complemented it by “diversity” policies, and the Netherlands, which until recently adopted a “multicultural” approach but which has moved toward integration and indeed assimilation. For each country, we will address three issues by a comparative analysis: the relationship to the principle of equality, the role played by the actors, and controversies surrounding implementation non-discrimination law.
