Marking 10 Years of the Anti-Discrimination Act in Croatia

Marking 10 years of the Anti-Discrimination Act in Croatia

Marking the anniversary of the adoption of the main legal instrument to fight discrimination in Croatia, Human Rights House Zagreb held an international conference in cooperation with the Office of the Ombudswoman.

At the event in April 2019, panel discussions brought together national and international experts. They addressed topics such as the role of different institutions in application of the anti-discrimination law and experiences in its practical application from the view of national courts and other stakeholders.

Discussions also focused on approaches to battle discrimination at regional and local levels. Human Rights House Zagreb has focused recently on this issue, publishing the report “Examples of Good Practices in Combating Discrimination at the Local Level”. This collects and presents good practices for local communities in Croatia to adopt concrete measures to combat discrimination and promote diversity.
