Youth Initiative for Human Rights – Kosovo (YIHR KS) with the support of Civil Rights Defenders, as part of its Human Rights Program held a training on Anti-Discrimination Law.

The training was organised in cooperation with the Kosovo Chamber of Advocates (OAK) and it was held on the 10th of October 2012 at the training centre of the Chamber of Advocates in Prishtina.

The training covered a range of aspects including discrimination, international standards and their applicability in Kosovo. The key aspects of the Anti-Discrimination Law 2004 were discussed, as well as a session on utilising the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights in discrimination cases. During a working lunch, lawyers discussed two scenarios consisting of discrimination on different grounds and in different spheres.

YIHR KS is grateful for the support of Civil Rights Defenders in making this possible and to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Kosovo for their contribution in delivering this training.
