ECRI General Policy Recommendation N°7 (revised) on national legislation to combat racism and racial discrimination - adopted on 13 December 2002 and revised on 7 December 2017
ECRI’s General Policy Recommendation No.7 sets out the key elements which should feature in a comprehensive national legislation to effectively combat racism and racial discrimination. The scope of the Recommendation is very wide and covers all branches of the law: constitutional, criminal, civil and administrative. It addresses not only direct and indirect discrimination, but also other legal aspects of the fight against racism, including racist expressions, racists organisations and racially-motivated offences.
