The concluding paper of this special issue seeks to reflect on recent developments with regard to the non-discrimination directives and their possible relevance for the united kingdom and the netherlands. Particular attention will be paid to the first case decided by the european court of justice on the basis of the directives, mangold.1 this case concerned the tricky question of the limits of the extended scope for justifying discrimination on the grounds of age, and the standards against which such exceptions to the non-discrimination principle should be measured. In addition, the attention currently being paid to the broader policy question of the need for, and desirability of, further ec non-discrimination directives will be noted.
