This report discusses the application of the Racial Equality Directive through the laws and practices in the 27 EU Member States. In doing so it explores the
challenges to the effective realisation of the directive’s goals and in conclusion discusses how such obstacles might be overcome. To the extent possible, the report
outlines how legislation and practices have evolved over time. However, there is often an absence of data
at Member State level and, where data is collected, divergent end-purposes and methodologies impede
direct and precise comparisons. Indicators capable of facilitating more standardised measurements of progress in the realisation of fundamental rights are in a state of
ongoing development. In this sense the FRA own work on indicators on the rights of the child constitutes a valuable tool for gauging implementation that highlights the need for further research of this nature.
