Key findings

With regard to discrimination and racism, the report recommends that improved access to redress mechanisms could be guaranteed through a simplification of relevant procedures, harmonisation of equality legislation and bodies, increased and more effective powers to national equality bodies, and stronger third-party complaints mechanisms.

Other relevant recommendations also includes adding nationality as grounds for prohibited discrimination, specifically prohibiting racial profiling in national anti-discrimination legislation and introducing the concept of multiple discrimination
