#MeetNEBs: Netherlands Institute for Human Rights

Equality in The Netherlands

  1. Every week, one of our member equality bodies tweets through the Twitter account @equineteurope, 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 Dutch member: the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights!
