Back Mediation panel – a low threshold mediation service for complaints on discrimination

The mediation panel organised by the Norwegian Peoples Aid is a service where victims of discrimination can present their complaints, get advice, and engage in dialogue through mediation with the offenders the police and the discrimination tribunal in cases that don’t meet the criteria of documentation and evidence required by the law for prosecution.

The panel provides professional mediation services; outreach and counselling to victims organized by the Norwegian Centre Against Racism and Queer World; courses for businesses, organizations and public services on how to recognize and prevent discrimination; and an annual conference on human rights, in collaboration with the Oslo Pride Foundation and other stakeholders.

The impact of the panel will be evaluated through analysis of the reports on complaints submitted to the Ombudsman for equality; the reports on hate crime submitted to Oslo Police District, the statistics on attitudes towards minorities are collected by Statistics Norway (IMDI)

The project also involves international cooperation with RADAR (Rotterdam, the Netherlands).
