Recommendations on Anti-discrimination based on the study visit to the UK (March 2017)

While the United Kingdom and Armenia differ in many substantial characteristics, the mission participants observed several elements of the work on anti-discrimination done in the UK which trigger thinking and action in Armenia related to implementing anti-discrimination policies. One of the most striking characteristics of the UK approach is that it is systematic and covers several issues: gender, social equality, discrimination, hate crimes, domestic violence etc., within one united methodology; and it is dealt with from several angles: by different structures of the authorities, civil  society, the media, businesses, etc.

The recommendations presented below are grouped into relevant sections: to and for the authorities, civil society, businesses, media, and the international community.
