Nordic ombudsmen for discrimination and equality met in Helsinki

Nordic ombudsmen for discrimination and equality met in Helsinki on 16 - 17 September 2010. At this meeting, the independent national authorities on discrimination and equality discussed national equality legislation and shared their experiences on current challenges in enforcing the law.

The meeting also touched on legislation regarding transgender persons and discrimination experienced by them, and also cases of discrimination where several causes for discrimination and several fundamental rights must be considered simultaneously.

Held annually, the Nordic meeting was organised this year by Finland's Ombudsman for Equality and Ombudsman for Minorities.
