If you see or experience racism, you can report it here. Racism occurs at individual, cultural and institutional levels. Overt racism is visible and more easily identified, however institutional racism can be more insidious and harder root out. Research by the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency identified Ireland as among the six worst countries in relation to levels of discrimination, with 73% of people from Sub-Saharan Africa stating that they had experienced racism in Ireland. 25% from Central and Eastern Europe also reported experiencing racism.

MRCI has set out our understanding of institutional racism and made a series of recommendations in our publication Racism and Migrant Workers in Ireland.
