- 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 Committee 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 is tasked specifically with developing a new and comprehensive legal instrument on combating hate speech; analysing and evaluating specific issues related to Roma and Traveller inclusion; carrying out a study on the active political participation of national minority youth; and developing a multi-level policy framework for intercultural integration.
