The EOC administers the Sex Discrimination Ordinance (SDO), Disability Discrimination Ordinance (DDO), Family Status Discrimination Ordinance (FSDO) and Race Discrimination Ordinance (RDO) to eliminate discrimination based on sex, marital status, pregnancy, disability, family status and race. We are committed to promoting equality of opportunities between men and women, between persons with and without a disability and irrespective of family status and race. Please refer to the EOC website for a brief introduction on the four ordinances: www.eoc.org.hk. Objectives Following the success of the first round of “The Funding Programme of Research Projects on Equal Opportunities” (the Funding Programme) carried out in 2013/14, EOC is launching the second one in 2017/18 which continues to encourage eligible academics and organizations with inspiring ideas to undertake innovative research projects. It is hoped that the funded research projects would aim at working towards the elimination of discrimination falling within the scope of the four anti-discrimination ordinances and promoting the principles of these ordinances. The EOC also welcomes research proposals focusing one/ or some of the subject areas covered in the Discrimination Law Review.
