Equinet - European network of equality bodies

Home >> News >> Europe

Europe

This toolkit aims to challenge dominant diversity management practices to move beyond gender as a singular category and shift toward an intersectional approach to diversity management.

It is part of a wider body of work produced by the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) exploring racism, discrimination and exclusion as experienced by women of colour through an intersectional lens.

 

In 2018 the Council of Europe is measuring the progress that European countries have made in advancing equality for LGBTQI people. This is the second time this process is happening after the recommendation CM/Rec(2010)5 was adopted 8 years ago. The recommendation established important standards about how discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) should be fought. Transgender Europe (TGEU) welcomes this second review on the recommendations, and looks forward to continued political commitment to LGBTQI equality from the Council of Europe.

 

Counter-Islamophobia Kit

October 4th 2018

The Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies of the University of Leeds has been running a 2-year project which aimed to critically review dominant anti-Muslim narratives, and also compare the use and efficacy of prevailing counter-narratives to Islamophobia in eight European Union member states (France, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Portugal, Greece and the UK).

Findings based on normative patterns of Islamophobia and effective counter-narratives to anti-Muslim hatred in each case have informed the production of a transferable ‘Counter-Islamophobia Kit’ (CIK), which aims to detail best-practice in countering anti-Muslim hate across the continent. The key messages contained within the CIK are aimed at policy makers, professionals and practitioners from across the EU.

 

On 2 October 2018, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) presented two new monitoring reports on the Republic of Moldova and Portugal. In both reports, ECRI analyse recent developments and outstanding issues and provide recommendations to the respective authorities.

EU citizens have the right to move freely from country to country but in practice pitfalls exist when it comes to receiving residence permits or social assistance, finds the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights’ latest report.

 

Young Roma remain trapped in a vicious poverty cycle linked to poor education and job prospects, finds a new report from the EU Agency of Fundamental Rights (FRA).

 

LGBTI people continue to experience stigma and discrimination combined with social isolation and limited understanding, leading to significant barriers in terms of accessing health and social care services. These experiences can translate into a risk of depression, suicide and self‐harm, violence, substance misuse and HIV infection.

Implemented between March 2016 and March 2018, the aim of this pilot project was to improve our understanding of how best to reduce specific health inequalities experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people. It focused on overlapping inequalities stemming from discrimination and unfair treatment on other grounds (e.g. age, status, income).
