Lawyers of the Institution of Ombudsman for Human Rights of Bosnia and Herzegovina, who successfully completed Training for Trainers, were conducting a training for representatives of the public institutions on 12 December in Livno.
The training aimed at raising awareness on the European anti-discrimination standards of persons working in the public administration, through presenting an overview of the most common cases of discrimination at the national level. It enabled participants to recognize discrimination, act preventively and to establish a direct contact with the Institution of Ombudsman for Human Rights when faced with dilemmas on how to proceed in individual cases. The manual on anti-discrimination produced under the Action was handed to the participants as a further tool for an efficient prevention of discrimination and taking adequate corrective actions.
The training was organised within the action “Strengthening the Human Rights Ombudsman to fight discrimination” which is being implemented in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a part of the programme “Horizontal Facility for Western Balkans and Turkey” funded by the European Union and co-funded and implemented by the Council of Europe.
