On the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the Council of Europe’s anti-racism Commission (ECRI) will publish a joint declaration with the European Union Agency for Human Rights (FRA) and OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), and launch new standards for equality bodies. On the same occasion, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and FRA will publish the updated Handbook on European non-discrimination law. This handbook, intended for legal practitioners – such as judges, prosecutors and lawyers, as well as law-enforcement officers, examines European non-discrimination law stemming from the EU non-discrimination directives and the European Convention of Human Rights, as well as makes reference to other Council of Europe instruments, such as the European Social Charter.
