Equinet - European network of equality bodies

Home >> Equinet Activities >> Events

Equinet and the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) are co-organising a conference on poverty and discrimination. This conference will aim to review the links between poverty and discrimination, take stock of recent initiatives introducing socio-economic status as a discrimination ground and discuss what can be done at EU and national levels to break the vicious cycle of social exclusion.

The conference will take place in the IHREC offices in Dublin on 22 March 2018.
