Activities covered by this disposal schedule

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), is an independent human rights monitoring mechanism specialised in questions relating to racism and intolerance.

ECRI’s task is to combat racism, xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance at the level of greater Europe and from the perspective of the protection of human rights. ECRI’s action covers all necessary measures to combat violence, discrimination and prejudice faced by persons or groups of persons, on grounds of “race”, colour, language, religion, nationality and national or ethnic origin.

ECRI’s programme of activities comprises three aspects: the country-by-country approach, work on general themes; and relations with civil society.
