Equality and Human Rights Framework

Launch of ENAR's European and national Shadow Reports

Monday 17 March 2014
New publications

21 March is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This year, ENAR will launch its annual European Shadow Report and 23 National Shadow Reports with a focus on racism and discrimination in employment. 

The 2012/2013 edition looks at the specific situation of racism and related discriminatory practices in employment. It reviews manifestations of discrimination on the grounds of ethnic origin and religion/beliefs in the labour market in Europe, illustrated by examples in different EU Member States, and examines how EU countries attempt to combat these discriminatory practices.

Five groups are identified as being most vulnerable to discrimination in employment:

- Migrants from non-EU Member States;

- Roma;

- Muslims;

- People of African descent and Black Europeans;

- and women with a minority or migrant background.

Despite the existence of a legal framework, discrimination in employment is still experienced as a widespread phenomenon.
