Praxis participates in the project ’Preventing and Combatting Racism and Xenophobia through Social Orientation of Non-Nationals’ as Estonian expert. The aim of the project is to seek tools and mechanisms to prevent and combat racism and xenophobia against non-nationals throughout their whole integration in society. An important part of that process is social orientation supposed to ensure that participants build in well in host societies. Integration and orientation should take place in full observance of fundamental rights and legal obligations of all parties. Thus, participants should be given knowledge about those and the acts of hatred they may encounter, learn to recognize such acts and be aware of all legal tools offered by the host state. The role of Praxis is to provide an overview of social orientation programme in Estonia, including its institutional and legal framework, audience, characteristics and contents, but also on the opportunities for foreigners to learn about their fundamental rights and obligations.
