For Black people, Roma, Muslims, migrants from non-EU countries, and women with a minority or migrant background living in Europe, discrimination is a major obstacle when looking for a job. Even once in employment, things don’t get better. This is the conclusion of ENAR’s 2012/13 Shadow Report on racism and discrimination in employment in Europe, released ahead of International Day Against Racial Discrimination. The Subjective Values Foundation is organising a round-table discussion with the experts of the report. Continue reading
The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is on the 21st of March is to propagate the importance and necessity of the coexisting different cultures, to provide help in getting to know and accept each other and to commemorate to all those people who spent their whole lives with fighting against racism.
The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in 2014 is intending to use culture to show the things bringing people together instead of disconnecting us. The series of events will be free to visit, held at different locations in the central area of the Party District in Budapest city within a few corners distance from each other. The face of the events will Mr Varga Livius (band Quimby) while the band named Akkezdet Phiai will be the main attraction at the concert at the end of the day.
The program will be based on three major campaigns which will be connected by the fight against racism and the Subjective Values Foundation:
U-CARE – has been created by the cooperation of eleven organisations from eight different countries. Their main task is to form an anti-racist and anti-discriminative approach through city culture, arts and media. Because of the involved people in the programs are the youth they are able pass these values to their own generation more ffectively than older people. They propagate the message of the U-CARE with workshops and different events addressing thousands of young European people.
No Hate Speech Movement – is a campaign initiated by the Council of Europe involving and mobilizing youth with various online and offline methods against online hate speech. The National Campaign Committee celebrates its one year existence and on the 21st of March, and we intend to call the attention on the dangers of online forms of racism and intolerance with an individual action week.
ENAR - The third campaign is connected to the report about racism and discrimination towards Romany and immigrant people on the labor market in Hungary issued by the ENAR (European Network Against Racism) and the two major campaigns (“Vote for diversity” and the coming EU Parliament elections related “Your vote can unite or divide”). The aim of the reports issued by the ENAR is to inform the decision-makers in all over Europe about the given situation.

Fostering political participation and policy involvement of migrants on 9 Central and Eastern EU countries
A new project started in 2013 November. The EU Integration Fund financed activity is aiming to increase electoral participation of immigrants – to make sure that immigrants with permanent resident permits have the possibility to be active in political life at local and regional level, and on the other hand that mainstream politics is not xenophobic and completely ignoring interests of the large part of population
We would also increase inclusion of immigrants in making decisions affecting them via participation in municipal and governmental advisory bodies – to make sure that decisions on local and national level affecting immigrants consider their view and problems communicated via advisory bodies on local and national level.
