13 November 2017 - Brussels, Strasbourg, Vienna, Warsaw - On the 10th anniversary of the landmark judgment of the European Court of Human Rights on the segregation of Roma children in education, equality and human rights organizations call for a redoubling of efforts to bring children together in the spirit of Europe’s commitment to dignity, equality and human rights.

 

 

Why do stories matter? What is framing? And how can we create the right messages to talk to a given audience?

’Framing Equality: Communication Toolkit for Equality Bodies’ explains the importance of framing - how the stories told interact with our thinking - and explains how to craft our communication to create sustainable social change.

It incorporates research insights, examples and interactive activities to offer a practical and creative guide for your communication.

 

The series of Equinet’s ’In Focus Briefs’ are short thematic papers, which will highlight the work of Equinet and its members, as well as EU developments on a given topic.

The first one gives an overview of the work of the Equinet Network over the past 10 years.

 

Since 2007, Equinet has been promoting equality in Europe by supporting and enabling the work of national equality bodies. It supports equality bodies to be independent and effective as valuable catalysts for more equal societies.

In 2017, Equinet celebrates its 10th Anniversary! We have grown from a project-based set-up of six members to become the recognised European Network of Equality Bodies, a membership organisation bringing together 46 equality bodies from 34 European countries.

As part of these celebrations, we would like to look at:

  • Equinet Past: Take a look back at the work that Equinet and its members have carried out over the past 10 years.
  • Equinet Present and Future: Identify opportunities and challenges within the Network at present, that should be taken on board as we develop into the future.
  • EU Developments: See how equality and anti-discrimination legislation and policy has developed during that time.

 

As part of our capacity building for members, we have organised training sessions on how to make the most of social media for equality bodies. This manual brings together the learning from these meetings to help you to set up a social media strategy, identify how best to monitor your results, how to create engaging content for the appropriate audience, get the most from the tools available, develop successful social media campaigns and deal with negativity on your social media channels.

 

The perspective aims to draw out, analyse and learn from the work and experience of equality bodies in combating discrimination against young people and to tease out the implications of their work for policy and practice development.

 

This report brings together the main highlights of our work, including events, publications and other activities from August 2015 to December 2016. It includes a particular focus on our work on standards for equality bodies.

 

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.

 

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.
