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.
