The principles of equality and non-discrimination are central to any system of human rights protection. Although international human rights instruments have core equality provisions in common, the interpretation of these equality provisions, the nature of the cases of discrimination and, consequently, the level of development and expertise in each facet of anti-discrimination and equality policy vary considerably. Such variations reflect the politics and imperatives underlying the social systems of different states.
The Executive Training Principles of Equality and Challenges of Discrimination. Problems and Effective Remedies provides for the conceptual and normative basis of the struggle for equality and against discrimination through looking at concrete cases. It illustrates steps taken to combat ethnic, national, racial, religious and multiple forms of discrimination, at international, regional and national levels. It assesses the effective access to such remedies and their efficiency. It overall assesses the progress made so far and present examples of good practice from different countries, discussing how there can be policy transfer and learning among different countries within and beyond Europe.
This Executive Training Seminar is addressed to officers of European and international organisations, officers of public administrations, NGO officers, trade union officers. It can also be useful to lawyers, researchers, human resource managers, educators, and any person working in the wider field of migration, minorities, discrimination, affirmative action.
