Key findings

ECRI urged the authorities to find a suitable solution in order for a fully independent national specialised body to combat discrimination, in
particular racial discrimination. In May 2016, the Protection against Discrimination Act entered into force. It establishes the Advocate of the Principle of Equality as an independent and specialised national body to combat discrimination in all fields.
It has the following main competences: independent assistance to victims of discrimination through counselling and legal advice as well as assistance in legal proceedings; inspection; undertaking independent studies, research, analyses and monitoring; publishing independent reports and issuing
recommendations, including proposals for special measures; raising public awareness; the right to lodge a claim for constitutional review of laws that are discriminatory; and
exchanging information with relevant EU bodies.

Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)

The working methods for the preparation of the reports involve documentary analyses, a visit to the country concerned, and then a confidential dialogue with the national authorities.
