CPEDEE President Ian Feldman participates in the Summer school, July 10-16, as a lector at the working sessions of the project ”Risk groups and Social Support Services The Right to Non-Discrimination” which is organized by the National Council for Combating Discrimination in Romania, together with the Carusel Association and the Faculty of Sociology and Social Assistance at the Bucharest University.
The project is organised in interactive session form based on the exchange of information and experience on human rights, non-discrimination and equal opportunities, HIV pre- and post-HIV counselling and HIV testing.
It is worth to mention that a close collaboration has been established between the Council for Preventing and Eliminating Discrimination and Ensuring Equality, and its homologous institution in Romania – the National Council for Combating Discrimination. Romanian partners always consult and share their experience with us.
During the last years, there were organised several study visits when CPEDEE and NCCD representatives exchanged experience in the field of preventing and combating of discrimination; the use of the online complaint mechanism; communication with European equality bodies (eg EQUINET); the involvement of civil society organizations in the process of examining the discriminative facts through amicus curiae.
