European Equality Law Network

European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination

Thematic reports

Equality bodies established in the EU Member States and EFTA countries covered by the network, based on the transposition of the EU Directives 2000/43/EC, 2004/113/EC, and 2006/54/EC, have a broad mandate to promote equality and combat discrimination. They tend to cover grounds and fields beyond those required by the Directives. Equality bodies are understood as key to the effective implementation of the EU equal treatment Directives.

The report Equality Bodies making a difference explores the current situation, operation, experience and impact of equality bodes. It describes their independence, effectiveness, and accessibility and the issues in relation to each of these indicators, and makes recommendations to address these. It builds on, up-dates and further develops the earlier work done on examining equality bodies for the European Network of Legal Experts in the Field of Non-Discrimination in 2006 by Rikki Holtmaat.
