Peru Reinforces The Fight Against Discrimination


The Ministry of Justice and Human Rights and Indecopi will sign an inter-institutional agreement to promote joint actions aimed at strengthening the fight against discrimination in Peru.

“As part of this agreement, it is expected to train officials of both entities and carry out information campaigns on a national scale for the benefit of citizens, to empower them in the protection and respect of their fundamental rights”, said El Peruano yesterday.

As part of these activities, on June 13, the First National Course on Equality and Non-Discrimination was held, organized by the Human Rights General Directorate of the Ministry of Justice.

The participants were trained to identify discrimination cases, as well as the actions that are carried out in the market in order to strengthen the protection of the rights of consumers in the country, according to information from El Peruano.

In this activity participated the general director of Human rights of the Minjus, Mónica Barriga, and the director of the National Authority of Consumer Protection of Indecopi, Wendy Ledesma.
