Abstract

This is a socio-legal analysis of discrimination as a multidimensional problem. It is argued that discrimination is not natural or static. It is the result of economic, political and cultural power imbalances; and of the oppression of some groups through exploitation, marginalization, cultural imperialism, violence and powerlessness. Discrimination is possible because there is a values system including beliefs and prejudices that support it. Discrimination depends on a given ideology to subsist. Discrimination is visible and can be analyzed at various interactive and mutually reinforcing levels: structural, cultural, institutional and personal. Therefore, the elimination of discrimination requires tackling all those levels.
