Equality and a human rights-based approach
The principles of equality and non-discrimination are part of the foundations of the rule of law.
At its core equality means fairness and the guarantee that individuals are not treated less favorably because of gender, age, ethnicity, skincolor, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or other grounds of discrimination.
To safeguard the right to this fairness there is legal protection both in international law and in Swedish discrimination legislation.
The Swedish Discrimation Act sets standards on how to work with active measures to promote equal rights at work and in education.
Equality also means equality of opportunity.
To be able to work with equality you therefore need to both try to understand the root causes of inequality and structural discrimination and apply a human rights-based approach. This often requires an analysis of gender norms, different forms of discrimination and power imbalances to ensure that interventions reach the most marginalized segments of the population.
