This training will take place in person in Bucharest (Romania) on 4-5 May. It is aimed at National Equality Bodies legal experts.
Although harassment has always been included in the anti-discrimination and equality Directives as a form of discrimination, it remains a relatively less-explored subject comparing to similar forms of discrimination such as sexual harassment or hate speech. The blurred lines in between these legal constructs could potentially help Equality Bodies maximise their mandate in cases in which they are not allowed to work on hate speech.
Harassment, both online and offline, is an important issue for Equality Bodies and one which they need to focus on. This Equinet training will reinforce Equality Bodies’ legal experts’ knowledge in this area to enhance their understanding of the phenomena and be better equipped to face the specific challenges that online and offline harassment present. It will examine cases in which this kind of claim has been put forward successfully, explore the problematic areas of implementation and identify good practices among others.
This training will equip Equality Bodies with the tools to better understand and face cases of online and offline harassment and their connection.
