The 3rd Equality Summit takes place in Stockholm.
It is co-organised by the Swedish Presidency of the European Union and the European Commission.
The objectives for this annual Summit are to promote equal rights and equal opportunities for all in the European Union, and to share knowledge and experiences in order to develop more effective ways of counteracting all forms of discrimination. The main theme this year is cooperation for equality between different stakeholders and different levels.
The Summit will bring together approximately 300 high-level delegates representing EU Member States, candidate and EEA countries, international organisations, EU-level NGO networks and social partners, business sector, media and academia.
Vladimír Špidla, Commissioner for Employment, Social affairs and Equal opportunities, Nyamko Sabuni, Minister for Integration and Gender Equality (Swedish Presidency), Joëlle Milquet, Minister for Employment and Equality in Belgium, Thomas Hammarberg, Commissioner for Human Rights at the Council of Europe and several other European Ministers will be among the speakers.
