The lack of data has been undermining discrimination claims in court, in NGOs’ and equality bodies’ equality advocacy, and in the effectiveness of public policies tackling discrimination and promoting equality throughout Europe.

The European Network Against Racism (ENAR) and the Open Society Foundations (OSF) organise a two-day symposium on 24th and 25th October in Brussels.

Equality data collection refers to the process of gathering disaggregated data – by means of monitoring employment, censuses, surveys, as well as justice and equality bodies’ data processes – in order to quantify discrimination on the ground of race, ethnic origin, religion/belief and disability, among other grounds.
