According to the Organizing Committee, “The conference is not only theoretical but also practical. On the one hand it aims to present new trends and developments in the law of non-discrimination in the European area. Οn the other hand, it aims to discuss the reasons why non-discrimination provisions have such a low impact on the Greek legal sphere and any related NGOs. Moreover this conference will explore from a legal point of view, practical issues that are arising in non-discrimination cases, at the same time, representatives from NGOs and the equality institutions will discuss the key role that society can have in combating discrimination”.
