DIME PROVIDES LEGAL AID AND MEDIATION IN CASES OF RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION
Here are some of the frequently asked questions we get:
1. May I bring another person or interpreter to the meetings?
Yes you may. This is a right everyone has.
You can bring a person you trust, such as a family member, friend, partner, lawyer etc. If you need an interpreter, we can help you find one.
2. What happens when I contact DiMe?
We adapt our services to your needs in order for you to understand what the law regulates and how we can help you solve your problems. Specifically:
- You have the right to an interpreter if you are not comfortable speaking Norwegian or English.
- You have enough time to explain what the problem is.
- We make sure you understand your options for a solution.
- You decide what's best for you.
- The information we receive is treated in a confidential manner.
3. Is there any point in contacting DiMe when I don't want to meet the other party or report the situation to the police?
Yes, we would like you to contact us anyway.
An important part of DiMe's work is to uncover and reduce instances of racism and discrimination below the surface.
