EU Anti-Discrimination Law

Seminar series in the framework of the European Commission's Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme 2014-2020

Since 2003, ERA has organised every year a series of seminars devoted to the two European anti-discrimination directives adopted under Article 19 TFEU. Directive 2000/43 prohibits all forms of discrimination based on race or ethnic origin in a number of areas. Directive 2000/78 prohibits all forms of discrimination in employment and occupation based on religion or convictions, handicap, age and sexual orientation.

These series are run in the framework of the Rights, Equality and European CommissionCitizenship Programme 2014-2020, on behalf of and in cooperation with the European Commission.

The series consists of six events per year specifically addressing the training needs of different target groups. Three of them are addressed to members of the judiciary (judges, prosecutors, advisors), two to legal practitioners (lawyers in private practice, from trade unions or employers’ associations, NGOs, labour inspectorates or equality bodies) and one to academics (university professors, law lecturers).

Participants come from all EU member states (as well as Iceland and Liechtenstein).
