  • The Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion (CDADI) was set up by the Committee of Ministers in 2019 to promote equality for all and build more inclusive societies, offering effective protection from discrimination and hate and where diversity is respected.
  • The CDADI advises the Committee of Ministers on all questions within its mandate, including preventing and combating hate speech and discrimination on grounds of “race”, colour, language, religion, national/ethnic origin, nationality, sexual orientation and gender identity; fighting anti-Gypsyism and improving the effective participation and inclusion of Roma and Travellers in society; safeguarding the rights of persons belonging to national minorities and the use of regional or minority languages; and promoting intercultural integration.
  • The CDADI promotes and facilitates thematic exchanges and peer reviews of experience and good practice to develop common policy responses to the many challenges related to increasing discrimination and hate in our societies.
  • The CDADI follows up relevant decisions taken at the 131st Session of the Committee of Ministers (Hamburg, 21 May 2021), and in particular contributes to the implementation of the key strategic priorities relating to its specific field of expertise as identified in the Strategic Framework of the Council of Europe, and responds to the respective key findings and challenges set out in the Secretary General’s 2021 Report on the state of democracy, human rights and rule of law “A democratic renewal for Europe”.
