In 2019, the 25th anniversary of the creation of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) will be celebrated.

This will be an opportunity to identify a number of major challenges that require determined political decision-making to ensure that all citizens have their rights respected and that there is greater social cohesion in Europe. ECRI has already carried out detailed evaluations of this work in the past , in 2004 for its 10th anniversary and in 2009 for its 15th anniversary.
