Monitoring EU law on racist crime: A guide for civil society

Written by ENAR, May 2015

This guide aims to help NGOs check whether national legislation meets EU law on racist crime, and on the effectiveness of policies adopted by government. It is a simple check list of existing obligations that NGOs across the EU can use and compare to their country’s laws and policies.

Civil society organisations across the EU report an increase in racist crimes in 2013, in particular against Black and Asian ethnic minorities, Roma, Jews and Muslims – or those perceived as such, according to the European Network Against Racism’s latest Shadow Report on racist crime in Europe, covering 26 European countries. A total of 47,210 racist crimes were officially recorded, but this is only the tip of the iceberg, as many EU Member States do not properly record and report racially motivated crimes. UKREN contributed the UK research for this report.

UKREN has taken from each political party's manifesto for the May 2015 General Election, its policies and pledges on human rights and race equality within a European context.
