Summary

This chapter addresses one of the most prominent developments in private law in the twentieth century, the introduction of status-related rights, where status is connected to a higher degree of protection in law than the ‘normal’ person receives. The European Union is playing a prominent role in this development, in the field of non-discrimination (Chapter 14), but also in the field of consumer law. The difficult question is the decision on what a consumer is and when and under what conditions they may enjoy a higher degree of protection.
