Parliament establishes independent equality advocate

The National Assembly voted in favour of a bill on the protection from discrimination which introduces an equality advocate as an independent body.

The advocate will ensure independent help to victims of discrimination, raise public awareness about discrimination and offer counselling. It will moreover conduct studies and analyses, draft recommendations and exchange information with relevant EU bodies.


The new law creates stronger foundation for eliminating all forms of discrimination.
