Joined in the fight against discrimination

In the previous two days, the Center held two informative-consultative seminars in Zenica and Vitez on the topic of prevention and elimination of discriminatory practices in the institutions of social and health care, education and state services.

The participants were representatives of the mentioned institutions and services from Central Bosnia and Zenica-Doboj Canton who recognized the topic as very actual. According to them, the seminars have managed to bring about the problem of discrimination and inadequate application of the Law on Prohibition of Discrimination in BiH, as well as the obstacles encountered by victims of discrimination in exercising their rights. Participants expressed their willingness and desire for closer cooperation so that they could work on preventing and eliminating discrimination on the ground and within their institutions.

This activity was carried out in the framework of the second cycle of small grants program “Cooalition Equality for All”. This program is made possible thanks to the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
