Access to justice and adequate redress for persons who are victims of discrimnation

The project proposed by ACCEPT on behalf of Anti-Discrimination Coalition has the purpose to increase the access to justice and effective redress mechanisms / remedies for persons exposed to discrimination.
This project aims to address the issues of:
- The lack of legal consequences meant to discourage discrimination
- Lack of information of the general public, on existing remedies and redress mechanisms for discrimination situations.
The main objectives of the Project refer to:
- Strengthening the advocacy capacity of Anti-Discrimination coalition (a coalition of NGOs in Romania, dealing with anti-discrimination of various groups) in order to increase access to justice and specific remedies for vulnerable people facing discrimination
- Development and promotion of services, instruments and informative resources that could contribute to facilitating access to justice for persons and groups that are vulnerable to discrimination.

The target groups benefiting from the projects implementation include: at least 10 NGOs dealing with anti-discrimination in various fields, as well as around 600 persons who are potential victims of discrimination, and who will be provided with legal services.
A Report on Monitoring and Evaluation of Access to Justice and redress mechanisms for victims of discrimination will be produced and shared with relevant stakeholders in the framework of the Project.
In addition, the capacity of a number of at least 10 NGO will be increased through the Project activities, a workshop on Freedom of Expression versus the principle of Non Discrimination will be held in Bucharest. Another significant result of the Project is the re-launching of the antidiscriminare.ro (anti-discrimination-ro) website, which will be revamped (reorganized, all content will be redrafted) in view of establishing an updated, interactive portal for victims of discrimination interested in available redress mechanisms for their cases.
The advocacy actions will consist, among others, in the Coalition's work concerning the multiannual anti-discrimination strategy proposed by the National Equality Body - CNCD as well as in the representation of strategic litigation cases.
