City Reporting is a crucial part of the ECCAR membership. Every two years ECCAR member cities are asked to report about their local work in the field of antiracism and the implementation of the 10 Point Plan of Action. Reporting is an important instrument for member cities to evaluate their local work, to receive valuable feedback, to learn from others and to benefit from the knowledge of ECCAR as a coalition of 150 cities.
The individual feedback for ECCAR member city from the ECCAR Scientific Advisory Council, chaired by UNESCO, is an important resource to evaluate and improve the work on the ground. The overall analysis of the reports handed in allows the ECCAR as a coalition to get a bigger picture about ongoing chances and challenges of local antiracism work in Europe. Based on the results ECCAR develops needs based formats to support its member cities to improve their local work and to strengthen the role of cities as motors for diversity on the ground.

A new online reporting tool for ECCAR member cities
Challenge, until 2022, member cities have reported on their action programs in narrative format, lacking a consistent structure. This made it challenging to analyze progress effectively.
Our solution, in collaboration with the ECCAR vice-presidency city of Barcelona, scientific support from the International Centre for the Promotion of Human Rights at the Local and Regional Levels under the auspices of UNESCO and the ECCAR Office, ECCAR started a special project to launch a new digital reporting tool.
At the heart of this project were the needs of the ECCAR member cities. Therefore, the city of Barcelona launched a specific Working Group to understand what kind of reporting would be helpful for cities. Based on the needs expressed by the ECCAR member cities, the vice-presidency city of Barcelona, the International Centre for the Promotion of Human Rights at the Local and Regional Levels under the auspices of UNESCO and the ECCAR office worked on a new digital reporting tool.
The aim of the new digital reporting tool was to make a simple online questionnaire and turn it into an easy-to-use database system. This makes it easier to report information by collecting data in a clear, organized, and consistent way. The development of the new digital reporting tool was financially supported by the European Union. For further information about ECCAR’s digital reporting tool contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
