Anti-Discrimination Legislation and Policy
The following description shall be considered a summary of legislation and policy relating to anti-discrimination only, and does not seek to address nor provide any indication of the de facto practical implementation of relevant legislation or policy decisions.
The right to be free from all forms of discrimination is guaranteed by the Constitution, whose Article 9 states that citizens [nationals] are equal before the Constitution and laws and are also entitled to equal freedoms and rights, regardless of characteristics such as sex, race, colour of skin, national and social origin, political and religious belief, property and social status. Article 54 par 3 states that restrictions of rights and freedoms may not be discriminatory on similar grounds (this provision does not list "political and religious belief", but includes "language"). Article 29 par 1 states that foreigners enjoy the freedoms and rights guaranteed by the Constitution, under conditions established by laws and international treaties.
