Introduction

Critical Race Theory (CRT) has existed for more than twenty years in the United States, where it has given rise to an important range of scholarship analysing the relationship between race and law. In contrast to the American experience of CRT, such legal scholarship is virtually unheard of in mainland Europe. To date, however, American CRT scholars have focused primarily on their own domestic reality and have only recently started to look at other jurisdictions to understand the ways in which race and law are interrelated globally.
