Expert meeting covers ethnic discrimination in the labour market

The OECD, in cooperation with FRA, will hold an expert meeting on methodological challenges and research designs for conducting discrimination tests (situation testing) in the area of employment.

Discrimination tests are field experiments that reveal the extent of discrimination for different groups when applying for jobs or on the rental market. The meeting will discuss methodological aspects to consider when designing a pilot study in several EU countries, as well as the possibility of testing discrimination against LGBTI people. The meeting takes place at the OECD in Paris on 18 September.
