Abstract: The work starts from the legislative framework of the principles of nondiscrimination and equality of chances between men and women in our country, presenting, at the same time, synthetically, the public authorities authorized with the application and control of the application of the law regarding the equality of chances. Given the obligation imposed by the European Directives of the E.U. member states, to modify or update the law so that all the European citizens would benefit of the same protection against discrimination, it is also presented a famous case study regarding the ethnic or religious discrimination – The Decision of the Paris Appeal Court of 19th June 2003. This cause demonstrates the good application by a French civil jurisdiction of the dispositions regarding the civil sanctions of the discriminations based on religious beliefs. However, at the level of the E.U. member states, in certain cases and fields, the legislative framework is not always enough to ensure the equality of chances, being necessary changes of mentality and behavior, as well as firm and varied political actions, in order to sensitize the involved public and institutions regarding the significance of the insurance of the application of the principles of non-discrimination and equality of chances.
