Campaign for Equality
One of the objectives of the study session is to initiate the Campaign for Equality and plan the strategy on how the campaign can be organised by the network on local, regional, national and European levels. This will need a lot of preparations and, what is of utmost importance, the clear recognition of the needs of different organisations involved in the campaign. This can be done by the analysis of actual problems and challenges to equality that exist in Europe nowadays. Therefore, we would like you to prepare an analysis that would cover:
1. The problems and challenges with equal opportunities of people representing different groups in your country.
2. The groups that require special protection in your community and country, and their situation (legal, social, etc.).
3. Existing legislation on guaranteeing equal opportunities for all and how it is implemented (or not implemented).
4. Existing support structures for different minority groups (NGOs, governmental structures).
