#MeetNEBs: Non-Discrimination Ombudsman

Equality in Finland

  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 one of our Finnish members, the Non-Discrimination Ombudsman!
  2. Happy international roma day! The Roma in Finland on average are in a better position than in the rest of Europe.  http://www.romanit.fi/in-english/
