Development and Implementation of a Non-Discrimination Training for Judges and Prosecutors Based on Human Rights Education - ADTJ
The primary goal of the project was the advancement of de-facto legal protection of persons concerned by discrimination through a training for judges and prosecutors. The training created awareness among the judges and prosecutors and thus tore down barriers in access to justice and assisted them to meet the challenges in line with human rights law as adopted by the international community.
From the beginning the project “Development and implementation of anti-discrimination training for judges and prosecutors on the basis of human rights education” was built on a close cooperation between the responsible authorities and the private training institutes and their practising lawyers in Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. In the pursuit of the project’s objectives – which were harmonised trainings programmes, standardised and institutionalised application of anti-discrimination law training in the judicial system in order to fulfil the obligation evolving out of the project contract and to achieve the corresponding results – the following measures were established:
The beneficiaries of the project were victims of discrimination, members of vulnerable groups, legal professions, counsellors, trainers and also researchers.
