Given the present state of law, Luxembourgish legislation does not provide any legal basis for mass surveillance. Nonetheless, various social and political developments compelled the state to develop them in the interests of national protection. During the cold war, Luxembourg had prepared to protect the country from the Soviet Union threats. Under such circumstances, it created the State Intelligence Service SIS (Service de renseignement de l'état, SREL) whose mission of that time was to protect national secrets externally and secrets of the United States with whom Luxembourg was united by common defense agreements [less ▲]

The Employment Directive was transposed into the “Equal Treatment Law” of 28 November 2006 on equal treatment (the “Law”). 1 The law’s definitions of direct and indirect discrimination includes all the elements in the definitions of the concept given in the Employment Directive, in particular less favourable treatment because of an individual’s sexual orientation as grounds for a finding of direct or indirect discrimination. The Equal treatment law amends the Labour and Criminal Codes, following very closely the provisions of the Employment Directive. By transposing both the Employment Directive and the Racial Equality Directive in the same piece of legislation, the Law broadens the Employment Directive’s material scope of the application, the “Equal Treatment Law” . The law also provides for the establishment of a Centre for Equal Treatment (CET) (Centre pour l’égalité de traitement, CET), which began to set up the elements necessary for its operation at the end of 2007. The CET has emphasised that its mission provides it with no binding powers over institutions or private persons that do not wish to collaborate with it; and believes that its investigative powers should be strengthened.

Gift-for-sex (GFS) barters are a niche practice potentially representing the commodification of everyday dating practices. We inquire how GFS exchanges are practiced and understood in contemporary Russia. Second, we situate these in relation to contemporary economic culture. Our project provides answers in two steps based on online content. First, we identify GFS exchange practices within a major dating website. Next, we take the signals exchanged in those dating profiles and display their intersubjective meanings in Russia based on blogs and discussion fora. Our analysis focuses on gender roles and inter-gender conflicts, the use of economic jargon, the link between luxury consumption and sexuality, and under- standings of gift-giving and generosity, in order to show how GFS barters, despite being contractual, carry emotional and romantic content. As such, love is under a constant conversion process, through the medium of the contractual gift, into the fictitious commodity form. [less ▲]
