Lobbying activities

Benchmarks for the federal election 2017

BUG has submitted questions to the German political parties CDU/CSU (Christian Democratic Union/ Christian Social Union), FDP (Free Democratic Party), SPD (Social Democratic Party), Die Linke (The Left) and Bündnis 90/Die Grünen (Alliance 90/The Greens) which shall serve as benchmarks for the upcoming federal election. The aforementioned parties were specifically asked about their opinions and proposals regarding the amendment and extension of legal protection against discrimination. Here you can find their answers (only available in German).

BUG strives for a society largely free of discrimination. By supporting complaints, BUG aims to achieve legal clarity. In order to end discrimination sustainably or to prevent it where possible, BUG aims to inform political decision-makers about structures of discrimination and to offer constructive solutions and methods for tackling it. BUG does this generally in very concrete and specific contexts. BUG encourages, for example, an amendment to the Länder code on pubs and restaurantsin order to develop a legal means to combat ethnic discrimination by club-owners.
