Call for struggle against discrimination

Call for struggle against discrimination

Council of Europe Group of Eminent Persons presented yesterday the report "Living Together”in the Committee of Ministers session meeting in Istanbul. Taking stock of the challenges arising from the resurgence of intolerance and discrimination in Europe, the report analyses "the threat" and proposes "the response" for "living together" in open European societies. The Group highlights specific risks to traditional Council of Europe values as widespread intolerance and  growing discrimination. Turkish member of Group of Eminent Persons Ayse Kadioglu said “Cultural and religious differences are not the source of conflict in Europe. Conflict arises when policies are not good – when cultural diversity is mishandled.”
