This report covers the highlights of Equinet activities from August 2015 until December 2016. Looking at this one and a half year period allows us to review not only some of the key activities during that time, but also to highlight the achievements in delivery of our priorities under the first period covered by our Strategic Plan 2015-2018.
An important priority on the Equinet agenda has been the development of stronger European standards for the work of equality bodies. This came as a response to a clear demand from our members, especially in times of economic and financial crisis, when austerity policies pose challenges to equality and the work of equality bodies. A number of reports and policy papers from international and European institutions and agencies recognise the important role of independent and effective equality bodies. More information on the Working paper on the Development of Standards for Equality Bodies can be found in the Spotlight section of the Report.
