Financial support RSS
In order to achieve tangible goals in its fight against discrimination, the Commission is setting up projects in the 27 EU countries and promoting dialogue between EU-level NGOs.
Projects in your country
The Commission is using the "Non-discrimination and diversity" strand of the PROGRESS programme to finance projects carried out in the 27 EU countries and other participating countries (e.g. Turkey, Serbia, FYROM, and Croatia).
Its aim is to support national authorities in:
- developing their national policy to combat discrimination and promote equality beyond legislation;
- fostering the dissemination of information on EU and national policy and legislation in the anti-discrimination field;
- identifying best practices which may be transferable to other participating countries;
- implementing more effectively their legislation on non-discrimination adopted following the Racial Equality Directive and the Employment Framework Directive .
Support for EU-level NGO networks
A key aim of the EU's work on combating discrimination is to foster dialogue and strengthen networking between organisations.
These organisations (NGOs defending people who suffer discrimination) are a central plank of contributing to anti-discrimination policy at different levels - both in formulating and implementing policy - through the information and expertise supplied by their members.
