When Computers Say No: Towards a Legal Response to Algorithmic Discrimination in Europe

Abstract

This chapter examines the interpretation and the application of EU non-discrimination laws in the algorithmic society. To do so, it first scrutinises the roots and mechanics of algorithmic discrimination and proposes working definitions with the aim of disentangling existing semantic confusions. Second, this chapter investigates the shortcomings of the existing anti-discrimination law framework, distinguishing between regulatory, conceptual, doctrinal and procedural gaps. Finally, this chapter proposes some reflections on enforcing (algorithmic) equality. In so doing, this chapter reflects on the normative implications of different possible interpretations of the legal framework in light of the problem of algorithmic discrimination.
