What are equality bodies? Why do we need them? What challenges do they face? This brochure 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 catalysts for more equal societies.

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

Hate speech and hate crime are growing and damaging phenomena across Europe. This is recognised in the work of the European Commission and of the Council of Europe. European standards for equality bodies recommend that their mandate be extended to include hate speech. Few equality bodies have an explicit mandate on hate speech, many have, however, interpreted their mandate to include hate speech. This situation can leave them lacking the competences and resources required to make an impact.

The Equinet Perspective ’Extending the Agenda. Equality Bodies addressing Hate Speech’ was written by Niall Crowley, with the support of Equinet’s Policy Formation Working Group.

This report was produced by Equinet’s Working Group on Equality law in order to analyse the legal developments that have taken place in the field of discrimination based on religion and belief since 2011. This updated version of our 2011 report provides an updated legal framework and details about recent case law in the areas of employment, education, provision of goods and services, manifestation of religion and belief in public and public administration and state functions.

 

This perspective explores the experience of equality bodies in making links with ombudsperson offices, and, in particular, multi-mandate bodies, specifically where a single institution holds both the equality mandate and the ombudsperson mandate.
