Since 2003, ERA has organised every year a series of seminars devoted to the two European anti-discrimination directives adopted under Article 13 TEC. Directive 2000/43 prohibits all forms of discrimination based on race or ethnic origin in a number of areas. Directive 2000/78 prohibits all forms of discrimination in employment and occupation based on religion or convictions, handicap, age and sexual orientation.
Interaction among participants will be encouraged through periods of discussion and working groups requiring their active participation.

There are two other editions of this event: 11-12 May 2009 (English, German), 25-26 May 2009 (English, Italian) . Other seminars are being organised for university professors and law lecturers (5-6 October) and for legal practitioners (27-28 April and 30 November-1 December).

These training sessions are financed by the European Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity (2007-2013).
This programme was established to support the implementation of the objectives of the European Union in the employment and social affairs area, as set out in the Social Agenda, and thereby contribute to the achievement of the Lisbon Strategy goals in these fields.
The seven-year Programme targets all stakeholders who can help shape the development of appropriate and effective employment and social legislation and policies, across the EU-27, EFTA and EU candidate and pre-candidate countries.
The Programme has six general objectives. These are:
(1) to improve the knowledge and understanding of the situation prevailing in the Member States (and in other participating countries) through analysis, evaluation and close monitoring of policies;
(2) to support the development of statistical tools and methods and common indicators, where appropriate broken down by gender and age group, in the areas covered by the programme;
(3) to support and monitor the implementation of Community law, where applicable, and policy objectives in the Member States, and assess their effectiveness and impact;
(4) to promote networking, mutual learning, identification and dissemination of good practice and innovative approaches at EU level;
(5) to enhance the awareness of the stakeholders and the general public about the EU policies and objectives pursued under each of the policy sections;
(6) to boost the capacity of key EU networks to promote, support and further develop EU policies and objectives, where applicable.
