Key findings

ECRI considers that, while the authorities have taken some small steps towards reducing social exclusion and its effects on migrants, in particular de facto residential segregation, their initiatives do not go beyond individual projects in certain localities. There is still no evidence of a coherent, overall national Action Plan to address the issue, as recommended by ECRI.

Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)

The working methods for the preparation of the reports involve documentary analyses, a visit to the country concerned, and then a confidential dialogue with the national authorities.

Sample details and representativeness

ECRI’s reports are analyses based on a great deal of information gathered from a wide variety of sources.
