The European Network of Equality Bodies promotes equality in Europe by supporting Equality Bodies to be independent and effective catalysts for more equal societies; where equality is a reality for everyone, diversity is valued, and all forms of discrimination have been eliminated.

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.

Equinet, the European Network of Equality Bodies, brings together national equality bodies from across Europe, which are empowered to counteract discrimination on a wide range of grounds. We support equality bodies in their work and advise on equality and non-discrimination policy and legislation.

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 common to Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail.
