On 31 January 2023 we organized a workshop for lawyers of state human rights institutions – Slovak National Centre for Human Rights (equality body) and Office of the Public Defender of Rights (Ombudsman).

During the workshop we:

  • presented our strategic litigation of racial discrimination cases and shared our extensive legal experience in this regard,
  • in groups, analyzed particular court decisions in discrimination cases that we have achieved in Poradna,
  • discussed selected legal issues related to decision making of discrimination cases and exchanged with participants our mutual legal experience in this field.

We would like to thank all the participants for attending the event, participating in the discussion and sharing their experiences.

We look forward to further cooperation with the both institutions in the future.

The workshop was organized within the the project “Promoting Roma equality in Slovenia and Slovakia“, which we are implementing with our partner organizations Minority Rights Group Europe and EPEKA, Slovenia.

The programme is funded by the European Union.
