EVERY PERSON IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT AND HAS THE SAME RIGHTS

regardless of their age, ethnic background, religion, sexual orientation, education level or disability. The State shall ensure the effective implementation of the principle of equal treatment. Everyone must be treated equally (person of equal human dignity) by the law, it must protect those who suffer any disadvantage or attack due to their protected characteristics, belonging to a social group or minority.

THE HELSINKI COMMITTEE’S GOALS ARE TO COMBAT DISCRIMINATION ANDTO ENSURE THAT THE FOLLOWING CASES WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN:

  • A blind person s not granted access to a supermarket because of his guide dog;
  • Someone was fired just because of his perceived sexual orientation;
  • No police intervention to prevent and stop violence against the Roma community;
  • Homeless people stopped and searched only because they are homeless,
  • Financial services were not accessible for the blind despite their legal obligations.
In the cases above, the people suffered discrimination and were represented by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee in Hungarian and international fora.
