WoPermanent Representation of Austria to the EU - Avenue de Cortenbergh 30 - 1040 Brussels

On the occasion of a recently published study on discrimination in Austria, AK EUROPA und ÖGB Europabüro organise an event aiming at discussing responses to discrimination at European and national level. The event follows a two-fold approach: In the afternoon, an expert workshop provides space to map multilayered dimensions of discrimination and best practices. In the evening, a high-level panel will discuss policy and legislative measures at EU level.

The afternoon workshop brings together experts from trade unions, the European institutions, civil society organisations and NGOs.

Keynote speakers

Daniel Schönherr (SORA) will present the main findings of the study “Cases of discrimination in Austria”.

Ursula Till-Tentschert (EU Agency for Fundamental Rights) will provide insight into the EU MIDIS-II project.

Igor Grabovac (Center for Public Health, Medical University Vienna) will talk about access to healthcare for LGBTIQ individuals.

The workshop is moderated by Sybille Pirklbauer (AK Vienna) and will be held in English.

In the evening, a panel discussion will feature the views of high-level policy makers.
