High Level Group on combatting racism, xenophobia and intolerance plan next steps

On 20 March, the High Level Group on combatting racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance will meet in Brussels.

The meeting will focus on presentation of the European Commission’s staff-working document on ‘Countering racism and xenophobia in the EU: fostering a society where pluralism, tolerance and non-discrimination prevail’. The group will also cover the next steps of the group including planned activities, practical cooperation and information exchange at expert level. There will also be a presentation on the follow-up to the Council declaration on antisemitism.

During the meeting, the European Commission will outline agency’s role regarding the upcoming expert working groups. A dedicated discussion in the afternoon in the European Parliament will review anti-racist measures that have been in place.
