Abstract In this publication, the German Institute for Human Rights presents the project "Non-Discrimination: Competencies of Associations" as an example for the development of organisations' capacities in the field of equality and human rights. The project (2009 – 2011) aimed at strengthening the implementation and enforcement of non-discrimination rights through organisations, and thereby at promoting a general culture of non-discrimination and human rights in Germany. After an overview of the role of civil society organisations in the mobilisation of non-discrimination and equality rights, the aims, approaches, means and methods of the project will be set out. The publication ends with the results of the project and recommendations for the realisation of effective protection against discrimination.
