On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and as part of the initiative promoted by the Observatory on the European Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, some members of the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory took part in the seminar “Being a Woman in Tehran. Interdisciplinary legal perspectives in dialogue with students.”

The topic falls within the fields of investigation of the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory both in the area of promotion and protection of human rights and with reference to issues of socio-economic integration in EU member states.

The speech of the Chair Holder, Prof. Teresa Russo (“The use of the Islamic headscarf and discrimination in the workplace: the risks of the policy of so-called neutrality“) focused on discrimination in the workplace and the difficult balance in the protection of rights, as reflected in the case law of the Court of Justice.
