Without equality there is no justice, without justice there is no social cohesion, without social cohesion there is no prosperity.

Equality bodies are in the front-line in the effort to promote equality because they are easily accessed and because they can act proactively, by identifying and combating the factors which give fertile ground for discrimination to grow, such as prejudice and stereotypes.

Equality is a precious value for societies and equality bodies are precious catalysts for societal change in this regard.
