Towards Convergence? Anti-discrimination Policies and Minority Rights Protection in the Eastern Partnership Countries and the European Union
Conference, Budapest, Hungary, 8-9 October 2015
Venue: Mercure Korona Hotel, Budapest 1053, Kecskeméti u. 14.
Organised by the Eastern Partnership Minorities Network and Minority Rights Group Europe
The Visegrád countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) adopted the anti-discrimination legislation in the early 2000s in the framework of the European Union accession process. The Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine) are in different stages of building this framework and implementing the law. What can they learn from the experience of the Visegrád countries? How can they better promote the recognition of the anti-discrimination instruments among minorities?
The aim of the conference is to share experiences of and strengthen networking among minority representatives, civil society organizations and decision-makers on effective implementation of the anti-discrimination framework guaranteeing minority rights. Experts and NGO practitioners will share their experiences from both the Eastern Partnership and the Visegrád countries.
