UN Human Rights Council debates racial profiling and incitement to hatred

During a UN panel debate on racial profiling, the Agency focused on the challenges of confronting incitement to hatred and discriminatory ethnic profiling, while guaranteeing security and safety of EU residents and respecting fundamental rights.

The panel debate on racial profiling and incitement to hatred, including in the context of migration took place on 17 March in Geneva. It was organised by the Human Rights Council to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The event took place two days after the official launch of the new FRA report ‘Together in the EU’. The Agency also underlined the need to build on integration fighting discrimination and fear and moving towards more inclusive and cohesive societies that encourage the active participation of migrants and their descendants.
