Monitoring Racism and Discrimination at the Local Level
The present manual on monitoring measures against racism and discrimination on the local level was developed in the framework of the project ‘European cities against racism – responsibilities of cities in counteracting racism sustainably’ (ECAR) funded by the European Commission. The overall goal of this project is to improve the impact and sustainability of local strategies and actions combating racism and discrimination through the development, exchange and transfer of innovative good practices in the fight against racist discrimination. Monitoring racism and discrimination for the benefit of local actors is an associated key objective of the project. The underlying assumption is that the availability of objective data on racism and discrimination is a prerequisite for evidence-based policy making at the local level. Yet, practice shows that European cities have hardly facilitated objectively verifiable indicators to measure racism and discrimination and the impact of their actions against these still widespread phenomena.
