The understanding of national initiatives and the promotion of anti-discriminatory practice comes in three main parts-
1. Conventions, legislations and regulations
2. Codes of practice and charters
3. Organisational policies and procedures.
Anti-discriminatory practice is when an action is taken to help stop discrimination of race, class, gender, disability and a lot more. Anti-discriminatory practice is very important in society as it is used to overcome prejudice whilst promoting equality; to help with this National Initiative began with the three main initiatives being; conventions, legislations and regulations.
What are the three main initiatives?
· A convention is agreements between different states to try to overcome a particular problem; this is like a treaty only less formal.
· Legislation is a law. It is a law which has been thought of and considered collectively among others which once passed, applies to everyone.
· A regulation is a rule which had been made and must be maintained by an authority, such as the NHS or the council.
European Convention of Human Rights
The European convention of human rights is a national initiative. This is a treaty across Europe which is there to protect human rights and fundamental freedom. So for anyone who feels as though any of their rights have been violated then they can go to court about how they feel their rights have been violated. The European convention of human rights covers things such as the right to: education, human dignity, religion, thought, liberty and security for everyone who lives in Europe.
The European convention of human rights is amazing for us living in the UK or anywhere else in Europe as it means we are able to have freedom in what we do and how we do things. It also allows us to have an opinion about what we believe letting us be able to be our selves.
Strength of the European convention of human rights is that it has allowed individuals to make complaints to the European Commission on Human Rights since 1966, which can make each and every individual in Europe to feel like they can have an opinion and be able to understand their rights as a whole...
