Seventeen years after adoption of EU laws that forbid discrimination, immigrants, descendants of immigrants, and minority
ethnic groups continue to face widespread discrimination across the EU and in all areas of life – most often when seeking
employment. For many, discrimination is a recurring experience. This is just one of the findings of FRA’s second European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey (EU-MIDIS II), which
collected information from over 25,500 respondents with different ethnic minority and immigrant backgrounds across all
28 EU Member States.
