Differential Treatment in Insurance Based on Gender and Age

July 9, 2021

The Certificate Programme “Differential Treatment in Insurance Based on Gender and Age” has been held on 22 November 2019 in the framework of the Jean Monnet Module HOPINEU supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The Certificate Programme aimed at familiarizing students with the anti-discrimination principle into force in the European Union, notably focusing on how the principle has impinged in the insurance sector with specific regard to the prohibition of gender-based and age-based discrimination. In this vein, after an introduction on the principle of equality, the EU Treaties as well as the relevant Directives and the CJEU case-law have been analyzed.
