The Hague Academy developed and organised together with PAX a five-day training on ‘Monitoring of policies relating to good governance and anti-discrimination’ which was held in Zagreb, Croatia, in 2015. During this training, Local Authorities and Civil Society organisations discussed their role in fighting discrimination. They learned how they can monitor anti-discrimination and good governance effectively and how they can collaborate in this. This one-week training was part of the project ‘Civil Society for Accountable Governance’, implemented by the Centre for Peace, Non-violence and Human Rights and funded by the European Union.
