Qualitative Info

One of the most significant actor in this field is NEKI / Másság Foundation, which releases a so called ‘White Booklet’  (containing the summaries of organisation’s complaint cases), which is another unique source of information for human rights activists, lawyers and researchers. This organization also provides awareness raising trainings for different groups of professionals (e.g. patient right representatives) and uses innovative methods for sensitivity and consciousness raising (e.g. theatre plays for youngsters on discrimination ).

The NGO Kézenfogva Foundation, which helps people living with mental disabilities or autism in court cases, published a collection of discrimination case descriptions, presenting the experiences of their clients.  

PATENT Association provides legal assistance for women, mostly in domestic violence cases.
