The research for this report was undertaken in the summer of 2016 and was designed to assess the remedies available for victims of discrimination in the Republic of Moldova. First, an analysis of a number of selected decisions of the Equality Council, including all of its decisions that have been contested in the courts and, the decisions of courts following those challenges, was undertaken.

The second part of the analysis was based on the substantive nature of the decisions of the Equality Council, issues of discrimination law itself and the impact of the decision on the complainant. Thirdly, this report considered the decisions issued by the national courts, appeal courts, the Supreme Court of Justice and the Constitutional Court in cases where complaint against discrimination was filed directly in one of those courts.
