CALL FOR CASES (now closed)
IDSN calls on all interested parties to prepare and submit a ‘good practice’ case on the elimination of caste discrimination before 20 November 2011.
The cases can cover as diverse practices as grass-root level initiatives, national mobilisation campaigns, media trainings, and international advocacy campaigns, and can represent a past experience or current practice. All cases should be viewed from a human rights perspective, and must aim to promote the general principles of non-discrimination, equality and inclusion. For further explanation on the criteria for defining a good practice, read the introduction to the standard questionnaire.
The case can be submitted in any format chosen. However, in order to make it comparative and replicable to other practices, the following standard questionnaire may be used as an inspiration or guide. The description of the case should not exceed more than 3-4 pages.
