Moving the Ideas of Non-Discrimination   Supporting an Equality Transformation (MINDSET)

MINDSET brought together national equality bodies, civil society organisations and the media in three countries (Italy, Romania and Sweden) to raise public awareness of racial discrimination and non-discrimination law, share experiences and build alliances among relevant stakeholders in this field, and grow capacity among media professionals.


Media trainings on non-discrimination for journalists in Brussels (in English) and in Italy, Romania and Sweden (in the national languages).

Handbook on the Racial Equality Directive with a particular focus on transposition and implementation in Italy, Romania and Sweden, authored by MPG.

Comparative needs assessment based on a survey organised by MPG of national equality bodies and CSOs in the three countries, exploring their priorities in the area of enforcement of non-discrimination law as well as their commonalities and differences.
