Grounds

September 26th 2016

Although European Anti-Discrimination law only requires that equality bodies are set up on the grounds of race and ethnic origin and gender, many countries have gone beyond these requirements and have equality bodies that deal with other grounds of discrimination (in particular, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief and disability). Depending on their mandate, equality bodies can support victims of different grounds of discrimination in employment, education, housing, social protection and healthcare and in the provision of goods and services.

Consult our graphs and map below to identify which members can fight which grounds of discrimination and in which fields.
