The report finds that all Member States now have:
- a legislative framework in place prohibiting racial or ethnic discrimination
- one or more ‘equality bodies' in place with responsibility for the promotion of equality on the grounds of race and ethnicity.
Prior to the adoption of the directive, many Member States did not have a detailed legislative or institutional framework on racial discrimination.
Since the directive was adopted, policies to promote ethnic and racial equality have been introduced in the workplace by employers and through agreements with trade unions.
