DISCRIMINATION

MEANING

grafika pike

Discrimination means that we treat an individual or a group of people differently and worse than others due to particular personal circumstances – i.e. traits that cannot be chosen/are inborn, or beliefs and religion that cannot be changed easily or simply recanted.

The Protection against Discrimination Act defines different types and forms of discrimination:

  • Direct discrimination: due to some personal circumstance, a certain person is treated less favourably in some circumstances than others;
  • Indirect discrimination: due to a seemingly neutral provision, criterion or practice, a certain person is in a less favoured position compared to other persons;
  • Harassment and sexual harassment;
  • Instructions to discriminate: any instructions that may cause discrimination:
  • Incitement to discrimination: encouraging others to commit any discriminatory acts, publicly justifying discrimination;
  • Retaliatory measures (victimisation): exposure of any discriminated persons due to their actions aimed at preventing or eliminating discrimination;
  • Severe forms of discrimination: multiple discrimination, mass discrimination, continuous and repeated discrimination, discrimination causing consequences difficult to remedy (especially when the victims are children or other vulnerable persons).

Discrimination can be active or passive. Active discrimination means an act is committed in order to discriminate against a person, whereas in the case of passive discrimination, measures to prevent discrimination have been abandoned.

Unequal treatment is reflected in poorer access to the education system, healthcare and social services, the labour market and employment options, goods, more difficult integration into society, in police and judicial procedures, disabling or hindering integration into various organisations, attaining housing and in many other areas.

MEDIA CAMPAIGN

Our media campaign focuses on presenting positive stories of representatives from vulnerable groups being successfully included in society, and deviates from the traditional discourse that is usually associated with the word discrimination. We stressed the main slogan INCLUSION 4ALL = ADVANTAGE 4ALL and prepared relevant messages:

  • What matters at work are dedication, knowledge and respect. Not sexual orientation.
  • What matters in life is what kind of a person you are and not where you come from.
  • We are inspired by the Roma style. What about the people?
  • We value experience in life. And experience comes with age.

We have prepared the following video stories:

We can talk about foreigners or people with different stories. We can talk about borders or about boundless possibilities for connecting and living together. What will you choose?

Check out and share the inspiring story of Sanny Al Saleh, whose roots go as far as Syria, and today, connect Slovenia with the wider Europe through his musical creations.
