    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. On 15th September 2005, a Conference was held in Valletta as follow-up to the Civil Society Project’s report on Anti-Discrimination, Inclusion and Equality in Malta, published in June 2005. Some 200 persons attended the Conference, from government, non-governmental organizations, academia, industry and commerce, employers’ associations and trade unions among others.
