Deciding Body:
Advocate General
Type:
Opinion
Decision date:
11/09/2018

Key facts of the case:

Request for a preliminary ruling from the Bundesgerichtshof (Federal Court of Justice, Germany)

(Directive 2000/43/EC — Equal treatment of persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin — Article 3(1)(g) — Education — Scholarships awarded to students having passed the First State Law Examination

Outcome of the case:

In the light of the foregoing considerations, I propose that the Court should answer the question referred by the Bundesgerichtshof (Federal Court of Justice, Germany) to the following effect:

The concept of ‘education’ within the meaning of Article 3(1)(g) of Council Directive 2000/43/EC of 29 June 2000 implementing the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin includes the award of scholarships intended to promote projects for research and studies abroad. It is for the national court to verify the existence of a genuine link between the financing provided and ‘education’.
