The European Union adopted the 2000/43/EC Racial Equality Directive nearly twenty years ago, most of the provisions of which has been interpreted at either European Union or national level. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the interpretation of the directive through legal practice, in focus with the most significant cases relating to minorities, especially to the Roma. Detailed analysis of the differentiation of direct and indirect discrimination, association with the protected characteristic and the issues of the burden of proof are provided. Since C-303/06 Coleman v Attridge Law, a person may bring a claim for direct discrimination if they are treated less favourably because they are associated with a protected characteristic, such as disability or race, even if they do not share that protected characteristic. In C-83/14 CHEZ Razpredelenie Bulgaria AD the CJEU has upheld a claim for indirect discrimination by association. The ECJ expressed that the Racial Equality Directive does not restrict the principle of equal treatment to persons who suffer discrimination based on their own racial or ethnic origin. The principle of equal treatment is intended to benefit those people who, although not themselves a member of the race or ethnic group concerned, nevertheless suffer less favourable treatment or a particular disadvantage on one of those grounds. Special attention is dedicated not only to the case-law of the European Court of Justice, but also to the practice of national equality bodies and courts. Enforcement of the decisions of national authorities has been a challenge and the issue provides the narrowly understood actuality of the study, since the Administrative Court of Sofia, Bulgaria, (which requested the preliminary ruling of the ECJ in the CHEZ Bulgaria case), recently ruled to quash the decision of the Bulgarian Equality Body, which has to restart the procedure, originally initiated ten years ago.
