Compared to earlier plans, this plan also covers EU citizens with an immigrant background, not just non-EU nationals.
It recognises how effective monitoring also requires disaggregating data by ethnic or racial origin, such as FRA’s survey work, as proposed in the recent EU anti-racism action plan.
The plan refers to FRA’s survey work on minorities and discrimination, its migration bulletins, Together in the EU report and database on anti-Muslim hatred. It also mentions how EU and Member States regularly quote and use FRA data, reports and resulting evidence.
The Commission published the plan on 24 November.
