24-04-2009 | EU-MIDIS

EU-MIDIS is the first ever EU-wide survey of immigrant and ethnic minority groups’ experiences of discrimination and victimisation in everyday life. EU-MIDIS is the first ever EU-wide survey of immigrant and ethnic minority groups’ experiences of discrimination and victimisation in everyday life. Addressing the lack of reliable and comparable data on minorities in many EU countries, the survey examines experiences of discriminatory treatment, racist crime victimisation, awareness of rights, and reporting of complaints. EU-MIDIS involved face-to-face interviews with 23,500 persons from selected immigrant and ethnic minority groups in all 27 Member States of the European Union. 5,000 persons from the majority population were also interviewed to compare the results.

Project outputs The results of this major survey will be released throughout 2009 in a series of “Data in Focus Reports” on specific minority groups as well on key issues examined in the survey. The full results of the survey will be presented at the FRA Fundamental Rights Conference in December 2009 in Stockholm, held under the auspices of the Swedish Presidency of the EU.
