FRA exhibition at European Parliament highlights Agency’s work, data protection, hate crime reports

In the run-up to this year’s Fundamental Rights Conference on the theme “Justice in times of austerity” (Brussels, 6-7 December), the FRA held an exhibition at the European Parliament on 26-29 November, highlighting the work of the Agency in documenting the situation of fundamental rights in the European Union (EU).

Making hate crime visible in the European Union: acknowledging victims' rights

Discrimination and intolerance persist in the European Union (EU) despite the best efforts of Member States to root them out, FRA research shows. Verbal abuse, physical attacks and murders motivated by prejudice target EU society in all its diversity, from visible minorities to those with disabilities. This FRA report is designed to help the EU and its Member States to tackle these fundamental rights violations both by making them more visible and bringing perpetrators to account.

EU-MIDIS Data in Focus Report 6: Minorities as Victims of Crime

Data in focus
This EU-MIDIS Data in focus report 6 presents data on respondents’ experiences of victimisation across five crime types: theft of or from a vehicle; burglary or attempted burglary; theft of personal property not involving force or threat (personal theft); assault or threat; and serious harassment. The European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey (EU-MIDIS) is the first EU-wide survey to ask 23,500 individuals with an ethnic and minority background about their experiences of discrimination and criminal victimisation in everyday life.

Racism and social marginalisation survey

The survey set out to explore the relationship between young people’s experiences of discrimination and social marginalisation, and their attitudes towards and actual use of violence. Of particular interest in this project were young Muslims’ experiences of alienation and social marginalisation, given that little comparative research existed on the topic.
