Summary of project results


A small number of immigrants reach the antidiscrimination bodies, and the data available on their discrimination in the area of civil rights are very scarce. The project objective is to promote human rights for immigrants, with focus on equal treatment in the area of civil rights. The equal treatment is provisioned for in the National Strategy on Immigration. The project is expected to raise the awareness of actors involved in the immigrants’ integration regarding human rights and discrimination, and to reduce the discriminatory practices against immigrants in the area of civil rights. A target population of 20 immigrants and 30 public servants was set for training. A premiere research on the aliens’ discrimination in Romania in the area of civil rights will provide the basis for a policy brief on anti-discrimination measures. The anti-discrimination training for immigrants and public servants will reduce the institutional discrimination. The anti-discrimination campaign supports the other project activities through awareness-raising. The beneficiaries of DIM are immigrants, authorities and NGOs working on migration, employers, and the Romanian society.
