Over the past ten years, the Equinet Network has been working hard to strengthen the vital work of equality bodies as equality champions, and provide a broad range of knowledge to effectively implement EU law and support those who have experienced discrimination. Throughout 2017 we consolidated Equinet’s platforms for peer support and built the capacity of equality bodies in a number of ways.
Through our working groups, we continued to work on:
At the European level, we promoted the importance of equality duties, and looked at how equality bodies can better support the integration of migrants and refugees in Europe.
Through our international partnerships, we supported the engagement of the members on the European Pillar of Social Rights, and promoted a call to action on inclusive education, especially for Roma children.
New and innovative tools, such as the use of videos, a timeline and a new thematic newsletter were developed in order to raise awareness of the work of Equinet and national equality bodies, linked to our 10th anniversary.
