High-level group on combating racism to meet

On 16 and 17 October the High Level group on combating racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance will meet in Vienna.

This time the discussion will focus on its future beyond 2018, including the FRA-coordinated subgroup on methodologies on recording and collecting hate crime data.

FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty will deliver a keynote speech on the situation of racism in the EU. The Agency will also chair a specific session dedicated to the subgroup.
