Anti Racism Commission calls for French progress on police identity controls and minority rights

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) has called for France to improve the recording of police identity controls and to recognise Travellers’ caravans as a type of housing.

Its latest report also recommends human rights training for people working in schools; measures to ensure that the dismantling of migrant camps is supervised, and improved measures to combat racism and LGBTI-phobic speech in politics.

ECRI welcomed progress in tackling discrimination and harassment in education; simplified school enrolment procedures for minors in irregular situations; better monitoring of hate speech; progress on recognising refugees’ qualifications, and progress on LGBTI rights, such as banning “conversion therapies”.
