Abstract

Using Hungarian case law, this essay first explores the singular potential in the anti-discrimination legal concept of ‘harassment’, as it is perceived under EU law, to tackle institutional discrimination. Following this, the author turns to the risks and limitations of the practical operationalization of institutional discrimination in human rights litigation, as well as the uniqueness and subsequent challenges the subjectified standards of evidence for harassment may pose for due process/fair trial, as demonstrated by harassment cases in American universities.
