The European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination provides independent information and advice to the European Commission on equality and non-discrimination law in the EU Member States and accession countries. The primary task of the network is to gather reliable expert information on legislation, case law and national developments to enable the Commission to fulfil their role as guardian of the treaties.

The network is jointly managed by Utrecht University,  the Human European Consultancy, and the Migration Policy Group. Utrecht University is responsible for the gender equality law stream of the Network’s activities. It is coordinated by Dr. Susanne Burri, Dr. Alexandra Timmer and Franka van Hoof LL.M.
