The Equal Rights Trust is working with the Moldovan non-governmental organisation Promo-Lex, the Council on Equality and others in Moldova to improve implementation of the Law on Ensuring Equality.
Some of our accomplishments are:
- Supporting twelve local organisations to document cases and patterns of discrimination in all regions of the country;
- Supporting strategic litigation in cases such as Eremia v Moldova, in which the European Court of Human Rights relied upon an Equal Rights Trust submission to find a violation of the right to non-discrimination in connection with the right to be free from torture;
- Training 90 activists and lawyers from across the country on the Law on Ensuring Equality and how to improve its implementation through advocacy and litigation.
