Law/Legislative Proposal


This paper presents recommendations regarding the legislative proposal by the European Commission, which introduces a risk-based approach to addressing a number of ethical and legal issues raised by AI.

The recommendations presented in this paper aim to reflect the position of equality bodies on how to protect equality in the context of AI-enabled systems and how to ensure that the role and powers of equality bodies are augmented and effectively taken into account when designing and developing the broader infrastructure of enforcement and redress of rights in the context of AI systems.

This paper should be read in conjunction with Equinet’s ambitions and proposals for EU legislation on equality bodies.
