Is Unia independent from politics?

Unia fulfils its responsibilities with full independence, according to the cooperation agreement of 12 June 2013. Unia’s independence has moreover been recognised internationally.

This does not prevent Unia from regularly interacting with political figures, given the key role that they have to play in the fight against discrimination. 

Unia is also managed by an interfederal board of directors that is composed in such a way as to offer the most pluralistic possible representation. The 17 members are appointed by the various parliaments according to the Paris Principles. They issue opinions on the functioning of Unia and the execution of its responsibilities.
