Equinet launches European Directory of Equality Bodies

September 29th 2016

The European Directory of Equality Bodies is a new database which brings together up-to-date profiles of our member equality bodies with comparable search options on their mandates, functions and accountability.

Objectives

The European Directory of Equality Bodies aims to:

  • Showcase the work of our members
  • Gather comparable, up-to-date information on equality bodies across Europe
  • Facilitate interest and research in the work and set-up of equality bodies

How does it work?

Equinet Members: The individual profiles of our members offer some background history of each equality body, as well as comparative information regarding its mandates, functions, structure and other statistics.

Mandates: Have a look at the grounds and fields of discrimination that our members cover, as well as other mandates and the scope of their work.

Functions: Find out more about the type of functions our member equality bodies carry out, what activities they do and what litigation powers they have.

Accountability: Different systems of accountability that reflect and ensure the independence and effectiveness of equality bodies exist amongst our members. Find out more under the section on accountability.
