G. SGUEO, Rights, Equality and Citizenship – European Parliamentary Research Service, PE 572.808
The Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme aims to protect equality and the rights of persons, as enshrined in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (EU) and the international human rights conventions to which the European Union has acceded. The programme has nine specific objectives, ranging from the promotion of non-discrimination to the enforcement of consumers’ rights, and funds a variety of actions, including awareness-raising and training activities, and support to key European actors involved in the protection of equality and the rights of persons (e.g. Member State authorities implementing European Union law).
