The aim of the programme is to increase lawyers' knowledge of available instruments and litigation strategies relating to minority rights and discrimination; to encourage sharing of experiences and good practices between countries.
The training will focus on the content and practical applications of the EU Article 13 Anti-Discrimination Directives, which are binding on all EU Member States and Candidate Countries. More specifically, participants will explore key concepts such as the shifting of the burden of proof, direct and indirect discrimination and dissuasive sanctions.

Strategies, litigation techniques and best practices will then be explored and critiqued through group work on thematic case studies. These sessions will also allow for discussions on the practicalities of working with Roma and other marginalized groups.
