A group of experts is considering development and possible merger of the operations of the equality ombudsman and the non-discrimination ombudsman, the Ministry of Justice said on Wednesday.
The group aims to gather views on the opportunities and risks of such a merger. In addition, it will present possible integration solutions.
During the consultation process, the parties concerned warned of the threat of deterioration of equal opportunities expertise, as well as a new workload for the ombudsman.
The non-discrimination ombudsman and equality ombudsman did not oppose the proposal. The current equality ombudsman is approaching retirement.
