PRESERVERE (Preventing Racism and Discrimination – Enabling the Effective Implementation of the EU Anti-Racist Legal Framework) is an initiative funded by the European Union (EU) under the CERV programme. The consortium is made up of partners from Italy, Bulgaria, Malta, Cyprus and Greece. Our mission is clear: to empower fronline workers, legal professionals and trainers/educators to combat intolerance, racism, xenophobia, and discrimination against vulnerable ethnic and racial groups, including Roma, Jews, Muslims, and people of African descent.
At the heart of PRESERVERE is the belief that effective protection against discrimination begins with a robust legal framework. That is why we are dedicated to enhancing the enforcement of anti-racist laws through a series of impactful activities.
1. Educational Tools: Download our educational tools designed for legal professionals, frontline workers, and trainers. These resources provide insights into the EU legal framework on anti-racism, empowering individuals with the knowledge to effect real change for the marginalised communities. Apart from the training toolkits, you can find the e-book on “THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EU ANTI-RACISM LEGAL FRAMEWORK IN 6 EUROPEAN STATES: BULGARIA, CYPRUS, GREECE, ITALY, MALTA, AND THE NETHERLANDS” as well as the e-book on “THE PRESERVERE PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION: LESSONS LEARNED AND RECOMMENDATIONS”. Access the tools here.

3. Final Conference in Cyprus: Our culminating event of PRESERVERE was a resounding success. The event was held on January 17, 2024 at the Bank of Cyprus Foundation. Over 100 participants enjoyed enlightening discussions, thought-provoking sessions, and networking opportunities with like-minded individuals passionate about combatting racism and discrimination. The project partners from the consortium, including Digital Society School’s Jeroen van Wijck, participated in one of the panels entitled “The Lernaean Hydra of European Racism and the Role of Civil Society”.
