EU-MIDIS ’Data in Focus Report 2: Muslims’, the FRA report on discrimination against Muslims

June 11th 2009

The second in the series of EU-MIDIS Data in Focus reports focuses on discrimination against Muslims. The findings of this study challenge popular assumptions about the identity of Muslim groups and their experiences of discrimination.

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has recently released the ’Data in Focus Report 2: Muslims’, a report on discrimination against Muslims in the EU. This study is part of the first ever EU-wide survey on immigrant and ethnic minority groups’ experiences of discrimination and racist crime (“EU MIDIS”). The findings reveal an under-reporting of incidents and a lack of trust in public authorities. The report brings also a new light on the popular assumptions about the identity of Muslim groups and their experiences of discrimination.
