The public health crisis triggered by COVID-19 and the measures taken by governments to tackle it are not neutral. They affect some in Europe more than others, with disproportionately negative effects on certain groups, often already in a disadvantaged socio-economic position and at risk of discrimination.
Equality is one of the shared founding values and principles of Europe. Equality benefits everyone and must be part of the solution in our response to the fallout of COVID-19. The current pandemic provides us with an opportunity to rebuild a fair, equal and resilient society by making sure we leave no one behind as we move forward from this crisis period.
For this reason, Equinet has produced the “Recommendation for a fair and equal Europe: Rebuilding our societies after COVID-19” to use as a minimum standard based on laws and common European values in the measures to be taken following this pandemic.
