Equality and non-discrimination

Equality is a fundamental right, and guaranteeing it plays a key role in the implementation of fundamental and human rights. The Non-Discrimination Act prohibits all discrimination on the basis of gender, age, origin, nationality, language, religion, belief, opinion, political activity, trade union activity, family relationships, state of health, disability, sexual orientation, or other personal characteristics.

The Ministry of Justice was responsible for the reform of the legislation on equality and non-discrimination and coordinates the implementation of the Non-Discrimination Act in the government.
