FRA will moderate the session ‘Fostering equality legislation and promoting non-discrimination policies’ during the European Commission’s Annual Colloquium on Fundamental Rights in Brussels on 2 October.
The session will look at the role of employment in fostering social inclusion and integration, diversity, mutual understanding and non-discrimination. It will also look at the importance of ensuring equal treatment in social protection, education and in access to goods and services. The colloquium will look at trends and underlying reasons for antisemitic and anti-Muslim incidents in the European Union, and their impact on people's lives and rights. It aims to explore ways to counter indifference in society at large, and the most relevant avenues to address these phenomena.
