Equinet - European network of equality bodies

Home >> Equinet Activities >> Events

On 19-21 November, the European Network of Equality Bodies (Equinet) and the National Office against Racial Discrimination (UNAR) co-organised a two-and-a-half-day seminar to build the individual capacity of equality bodies’ staff members to deal with hate speech both on and off line. The seminar focused on understanding the phenomenon of hate speech, as well as looking at how equality bodies can manage and prevent hate speech.

 

In November 2018, a first of its kind event co-organized with the Open Society Justice Initiative, brought together more than 30 Equality Bodies from across Europe with civil society representatives and other expert speakers to discuss equality bodies’ roles in countering ethnic profiling. The seminar provided a forum to discuss good and promising practices by equality bodies, brought in the perspective of law enforcement authorities and NGOs working on the ground and added lessons learned from Canada on police oversight and community involvement.

 

On 7 November 2018, the General Assembly of Equinet Members met in Brussels for the 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM). This year’s AGM was highlighted by the adoption of Equinet’s Strategic Plan for 2019-2022 and 2019 Work Plan, as well as by the expansion of the Network to three new members.

 

On 17-18 October, the European Network of Equality Bodies (Equinet) and the European Commission co-organised a one-and-a-half-day seminar on supporting persons experiencing discriminatory dismissal, in cooperation with stakeholders such as labour inspectorates.
