European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI)

Cooperation with non-governmental organisations

NGOs are ECRI’s key partners in the fight against racism and intolerance. ECRI is strongly committed to strengthening its cooperation with NGOs by exchanging information, organising meetings and consultations and developing its network of partner NGOs. NGOs are a vital source of information about the situation of vulnerable groups and racist incidents. ECRI’s relationship with NGOs is a genuine two-way exchange, as these organisations also play an important role in helping to establish priorities for ECRI’s work.
