Despite legislation outlawing discrimination across the EU, inequalities between groups appear to be an enduring feature of Irish and European societies. The extent to which inequality is due to discrimination is a matter of continuing debate and controversy. Accurately measuring discrimination is therefore a crucial yet challenging task.

This volume showcases Irish and international research on inequality, and on discrimination as a contributor to that inequality. Drawing on economics, sociology and social psychology, Making Equality Count highlights advances made in the measurement of discrimination, as well as the large body of evidence that has been amassed on this topic.
