Areas of work

Fighting against all discriminations

The HALDE helps anyone to identify discriminatory practices and to fight them. It advises in all the judicial arrangements, and contributes to establish evidence for discrimination. It has investigatory powers to instruct files, and can demand documents and evidence which the victim could not obtain. It can also hear witnesses.

The HALDE helps to find an adapted response:

The HALDE gives advice and recommandations to the French government, the Parliament and to public authorities, in order to fight against discriminations and improve laws in the area of discrimination.

Promoting equality

The HALDE promotes equal opportunities. It performs actions of raising awareness and training in order to change mindsets and attitudes. It identifies and disseminates the good experiences in fighting discriminations, and delivers annual reports to the French President, to the First Minister and to the Parliament. It also performs big raising-awareness campaigns with the public.
