Equinet, European Network of Equality Bodies promotes equality in Europe by supporting equality bodies to achieve equality for all

Equality Bodies

Equality bodies are national public institutions set up across Europe to promote equality for all and tackle discrimination. They are independent organisations protecting and assisting victims of discrimination, monitoring and reporting on discrimination issues. They play a fundamental role in the non-discrimination architecture of the EU.

Equality in Europe

The European Union is founded on the value of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. These values are both enshrined in the international and European legislative framework, which helps our members advance equality for all.
