Annual Report on ECRI’S Activities
Each year, as an introduction to its annual report, ECRI outlines the main trends in the fields of racism, racial discrimination1, xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance in Europe.
The purpose of this exercise is to show the context in which ECRI must continue its efforts and step up its action in the future. The precise characteristics and extent of these trends, observed in the course of ECRI’s various activities, vary from region to region and country to country. They are, however, sufficiently widespread to justify a special mention.
