Students will be provided the home and host country they will be comparing via Canvas communication from the module team.
The company has provided you a number of areas they want you to cover as part of your research and reporting:

b) Critically compare and contrast the key similarities and/or differences in equality (or anti-discrimination) law between the home and host country (500 words)
