The Hungarian Helsinki Committee provides anti-discrimination trainings to various actors. In 2008, a training was delivered to NGO activists and trade union representatives, and a diversity management training was devised and provided to HR managers of 25 large for-profit companies. Employers’ commitment to anti-discrimination is the indispensable condition of the fulfillment of equality of chance in labor.
This project, to be carried out in 2009, is aimed at decreasing racism among police officers and contributing to the development of an organizational culture of tolerance within the Hungarian police force.
Building on its training experience, the HHC launched its Equal Treatment Law Clinic in December 2008 in cooperation with the ELTE University of Budapest and the University of Miskolc. The program, which will run until November 2009, is aimed at sensitising law students in relation to antidiscrimination issues while providing them with practical working experience in the field.
