ENAR Shadow Report 2011-2012
european network against racism
 
Authors: Human Rights & Equality Consultancy, Surrey, EnglandRepresented by: Brenda Parkes, Esther Maynard, Razia Karim and Anthony RobinsonCopy editors: Shannon Pohman and Georgina Siklossy o ENAR
Racism is a reality in the lives o many ethnic and religious minorities in the EU. However, the extent andmaniestations o this reality are oten unknown and undocumented, especially in o cial data sources, meaningthat it can be di cult to analyse the situation and to establish solutions to it. The ENAR Shadow Reports are produced to ll the gaps in the o cial and academic data, to oer an alternativeto that data and to bring an NGO perspective on the realities o racism in the EU and its Member States. NGOreports are, by their nature, based on many sources o data, o cial, uno cial, academic and experiential. Thisallows access to inormation which, while sometimes not backed up by the rigours o academic standards,provides the vital perspective o those that either are or work directly with those aected by racism. It is thisthat gives NGO reports their added value, complementing academic and o cial reporting.Published by the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) in Brussels, March 2013, with the support o theEuropean Union Programme or Employment and Social Solidarity - PROGRESS (2007-2013), the Open SocietyFoundations and the ENAR Foundation.PROGRESS is implemented by the European Commission. It was established to nancially support theimplementation o the objectives o the European Union in the employment, social aairs and equalopportunities area, and thereby contribute to the achievement o the Europe 2020 Strategy goals in theseelds. The seven-year Programme targets all stakeholders who can help shape the development o appropriateand eective employment and social legislation and policies, across the EU-27, EFTA-EEA and EU candidate andpre-candidate countries.
