FRA Report: Being Black in the EU – experiences of people of African descent

Report published by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) on 30/10/2023 – accessible here.

FRA’s first Being Black in the EU report exposed widespread and entrenched racism against people of African descent in Europe. Now updated with new data, this report revisits the situation revealing persistent racial discrimination, harassment and violence. Overall, experiences of racial discrimination increased in the EU countries since 2016, reaching as high as 77%. The lack of progress is alarming despite binding anti-discrimination law in the EU since 2000 and significant EU policy developments since then.
