European Year of Equal Opportunities for All

Tuesday, January 9, 2007

Meg spoke at a reception to celebrate 2007 as the ‘European Year of Equal Opportunities for All’ held by the European Parliamentary Labour Party.

 

Meg outlined the four core themes of the Year:

  • Rights - raising awareness of the right to equality and non-discrimination,
  • Representation - stimulating a debate on ways to increase the participation of under-represented groups in society,
  • Recognition - celebrating and accommodating diversity, and
  • Respect - promoting a more cohesive society.

She also highlighted October 2007 as the start of the new Commission for Equality and Human Rights. This new commission will ensure that there will be one body responsible for promoting equality and providing people with the support to tackle discrimination.

Initially the year will be co-ordinated from the Department for Communities and Local Government - in the course of the Year co-ordination will transfer more responsibility to the new Commission for Equality and Human Rights.

 

The Year in the UK will focus around three areas:

  • the impact of demographic change on equality,
  • equality in local communities, and
  • improving discrimination advice to those who need it.
