The fifth edition of this column examines the period between January and December 2016.

A significant part thereof is devoted to European jurisdictions, where case law continues to be intertwined. his year, we analyse several key developments related to four prohibited discrimination grounds: (I)  disability and health status, (II)  sexual orientation, (III)  age, and (IV)  racial and ethnic origin. These developments coexist with timid decisions which are far from an integrated approach, especially when discrimination on the grounds of social orientation is in play
