Invitation to Hearing on Caste-Based Discrimination “Joining forces for a caste-free world”

Time: Wednesday, March 28th 2012, 09.00-13.00 Place: Litteraturhuset, Room: Amalie Skram

Caste discrimination is one of the most serious human rights issues in the world today. Yet in our part of the world, many are not even aware that it still exists. Affecting at least 260 million people globally, caste discrimination involves massive violations of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.

On March 28th, Norwegian authorities, politicians, organizations working with countries affected by caste based discrimination, and the general public are invited to a hearing on caste based discrimination.

This hearing/seminar will examine the still existing problem of caste-based discrimination, the double plight of women and possible responses.
