The European Commission has awarded the contract for the European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination to the consortium of Migration Policy Group (MPG), Utrecht University (UU) and Human European Consultancy (HEC).
The new network is a follow-up to the previous European Network of Legal Experts in the Non-Discrimination Field (managed by MPG and HEC) and the European Network of Legal Experts in the Field of Gender Equality (managed by UU). The new Equality Law Network will continue to provide the European Commission with independent information and advice on relevant legal and policy developments throughout the EU Member States, EFTA / EEA and candidate countries. Through national and thematic reporting as well as the publishing of several comparative analyses and law reviews, the Network will keep the Commission as well as the general public informed on legislation, case-law and policy developments of relevance across these countries.
MPG will therefore continue to provide its expertise by ensuring the high quality of the content of the Network’s work with regards to the five anti-discrimination grounds of race/ethnic origin, age, disability, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
