In the performance of its mission, the Centre can notably:

  • publish reports, issue opinions and recommendations, and carry out studies touching on all matters relating to discrimination;
  • produce and supply all information and documentation within the framework of its mission;
  • lend assistance to people who feel that they have been the victim of discrimination by providing them with an advisory and orientation service intended to inform victims regarding their individual rights, the legislation, case law and the means for claiming their rights;
  • conduct or commission independent surveys and analyses concerning unjustified restrictions and obstacles to the right to free movement, or discrimination on grounds of nationality, of Union workers and members of their family, according to regulation (EU) No 492/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 April 2011 on freedom of movement for workers within the Union.
