The seminar entitled “Access to Goods, Services and Housing” was similar in content but adapted to a different target group. Those invited to participate included staff from the Market Inspectorate of the Republic of Slovenia, the Environment and Spatial Planning Inspectorate and the Consumer Protection Office, representatives of non-governmental consumers' organisations, the tenants' association and representatives of certain interest groups at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Settlement Council at the Bank Association of Slovenia and the mediation council at the Slovenian Insurance Association and some of the larger municipal housing funds.  

The participants were satisfied with the seminar since confronting prejudice and the mechanisms of discrimination to which they were subjected at the seminar will help them recognise discrimination in the future. They also expressed a need for further training in ways to eliminate discriminatory practices. They would also like to see policy pay more attention to the area of discrimination.
