Equinet - European network of equality bodies

Home >> News >> Equinet

Equinet

On 28 February, ECRI released new reports on combatting racism and intolerance in Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland and Luxembourg. It also released the conclusions on the implementation of priority recommendations in respect of Belgium and Germany.

 

Race and ethnic origin was the first ground on which EU legislation required Member States to set up equality bodies. Many Member States did so even before this became a legally binding requirement under EU law.

 

Equinet is commissioning a research paper on the evolution of the mandates and resources of equality bodies over the past decade. The planned research will aim to elucidate how the mandates and resources of national equality bodies have developed, and if there can be found possible correlative relationships between them.

Submission deadline: 2 May 2017 (09:00 AM)

 

What are equality bodies? Why do we need equality bodies? What challenges do equality bodies face? This tool aims to raise awareness about the role of and challenges faced by equality bodies at national and EU level, but also, on the way they can cooperate and bring added value to the work of stakeholders in their daily work.

The work of Equinet, European network of equality bodies is also outlined. The network promotes equality in Europe by supporting and enabling the work of equality bodies to be independent and effective as valuable catalysts for more equal societies.

A useful list of Equinet members and the grounds of discrimination covered per country is also available.

This study examines and analyses the design and implementation of statutory duties in equal treatment legislation that aim to go beyond a prohibition on discrimination to promote equality. These encompass preventive duties, institutional duties and mainstreaming duties. The study explores and assesses the role of, and engagement by, equality bodies in their implementation. In doing so, it draws from the experience and perspective of equality bodies involved in implementing such statutory duties.
