EU/ Partnership for Good Governance supports the Moldovan Equality Council on strengthening its strategic approach towards monitoring.
On August 5th, international consultant Niall Crowley presented the results of a review of the monitoring mechanisms and instruments of the Moldovan Equality Council. The research included the development of recommendations to further support the Equality Council in this area of its work. The report, prepared on the basis of a literature review and two meetings with key personnel in the Equality Council, first establishes a perspective on the monitoring function of an equality body from the international standards available. It then draws from these standards, and from the current approaches being implemented by the Equality Council, to set out: a framework for monitoring; a strategy for monitoring; and a further evolution of internal monitoring processes. It concludes with conclusions and recommendations for consideration by the Equality Council.
This activity was organized as part of the assistance provided to the Moldovan Equality Council, partner institution of the national project “Strengthening the capacities of the justice sector actors to deliver justice in line with European standards, in particular to fight discrimination in the Republic of Moldova”, implemented in the frame of the joint EU/CoE Programme “Partnership for Good Governance II”.
