The perspective was prepared by Equinet’s Working Group on Policy Formation and seeks to fulfill the following aims:
Examine the law governing the work of equality bodies on the ground of racial or ethnic origin and explore the strategic approaches developed by them in this field.
Identify the body of work carried out on the ground of racial or ethnic origin by the diversity of equality bodies across Europe.
Present suggestions for the further development of this work by equality bodies and identify the implications for policy formation at EU and Member State levels.
The perspective is based on a survey of Equinet members that was conducted in September/October 2012. Twenty-one equality bodies from eighteen different countries responded to the survey. Six of these equality bodies were predominantly tribunal type equality bodies. Fourteen of them were predominantly promotional type equality bodies.
