#MeetNEBs: Equality and Anti-Discrimination Ombud

Equality in Norway

  1. Every week, one of our member equality bodies gets to tweet through the Twitter account @equineteurope, which aims to present the work of Equinet and its members through a mix of experiences and opinions from across Europe. Through the stories of the various curators, you will discover more about the day-to-day work of equality bodies and how they tackle discrimination in their country. This week, it's our Norwegian member at the Equality and Anti-Discrimination Ombud!
