In the framework of the project the Human Rights Centre increases its competence in the field of equal treatment, which is a part of the Human Rights Centre strategy for 2012-2015. This is achieved among other measures by setting up continuous media monitoring and by participating in public debate. During the project specialist training is offered in order to introduce the subject of equal treatment to lawyers, attorneys and civil society organisations.

In addition, a conference on equal treatment will be organised and the Centre’s counselling sessions on Wednesdays will be continued within the project. In the autumn law students will be offered traineeships in legal advice. Students interested in the opportunity should contact the project manager.
