All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Everyone is entitled to all rights and freedoms, without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, color, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status.

CEDEM has been conducting activities in this area since its establishment in 1999, organizing many training seminars and workshops in order to strengthen protection for human rights in Montenegro. Its training programs are designed for different society actors, such as civil servants, civil society activists, students, etc. CEDEM made the first draft of the Anti-discrimination Law in 2005, which was followed by many educational programs in this area.
