Racism and xenophobia are a widespread problem in Europe today, with anti-immigrants attitudes on the rise. Across the EU, LGBTI persons and other vulnerable groups continue to face discrimination, violence and exclusion.
We are pleased to announce that the first course EU/CoE "HELP in the 28" course on "Fight against racism, xenophobia and homophobia/transphobia" is launched in our E-learning platform in English.
The course covers in an interactive way the European non-discrimination law (from the Council of Europe and EU) and the impressive body of case law of the European Court of Human Rights and of the Court of Justice of the European Union, in addition to decision of the European Committee of Social Rights.
This course has four modules:
- Key concepts
- Legal framework
- Racism and xenophobia
- Homophobia and transphobia
Existing case law covers topics as varied as: discrimination during job recruitment or at the workplace; discrimination receiving health care; hate crimes, hate speech or harassment on racism or homophobic grounds; lack of respect for private and family life of LGBTI persons; legal gender recognition.
The course has been developed under the “HELP in the 28” Programme implemented by the Council of Europe. Funded by the EU, “HELP in the 28” is the largest training project within the EU on fundamental rights for judges, prosecutors and lawyers.
