This was followed by statements from four Ombudsman Deputies and their attitudes regarding Anti- discrimination. The same opinion was also given from the Advisor Judge, Deputy Head of the Law Clinic and the Centre for Peace studies. All agreed that this is a very important topic and should be more addressed to the public by raising awareness and working on deepening all fields of anti-discrimination. It should not be only driven by some very enthusiastic persons, but it should be broth to all layers of society. Therefore this Study Draft on National Antidiscrimination is a very important step improving todays present state towards a future without discrimination.
