Discrimination in the legal framework and Montenegrin reality
– how to improve the current state of affairs?

The seminar will be held from 22 to 24 November 2013 in the hall of the Centre for Civic Education (CCE). The organizer will cover all expenses for selected candidates, with their obligation to participate in the entire programme. Participants will work with professional lecturers who will, in a combination of theoretical and practical approaches, address existing legal and institutional framework in Montenegro in the field of protection against discrimination, with focus on some specific areas and case studies, as well as basic techniques in formulating project ideas and project management in the field.

The three days long seminar is part of the regional project “Civil society networking on critical values of human rights in Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo”, which is financially supported by the European Commission, with the aim of providing support to civil society organizations in the three neighbouring countries of the Western Balkans in addressing common challenges in human rights violations and networking to consolidate political and legal solutions for these issues. More specifically, the project activities are related to the improvement of the position and rights of the LGBT community, empowerment of women in political and social life and the monitoring of prosecution of discrimination cases.

The project is implemented by the Coalition for Equality STEP composed of: Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights – YUCOM, Belgrade Centre for Human Rights, CHRIS – The Network of the Committees for Human Rights in Serbia and Gay Straight Alliance from Serbia; Youth Initiative for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law Centre from Kosovo; Centre for Civic Education (CCE) and the LGBT Forum Progress from Montenegro.

Interested candidates can apply no later than 20 November 2013 until 15:00, sending the following documents to the email info@cgo-cce.org: brief information about the organization they are working in, CV and motivation letter.
