Chapter Summary

European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) work programme is wide-ranging, and based on three main aspects: its general policy recommendations, country monitoring reports and work to build up relations with civil society. The most important of these three tasks taking most of the working time of ECRI is country reports. The first principle guiding the work of ECRI is that it deals with all Member States of the Council of Europe on an equal footing. A comprehensive approach to problems of racism, xenophobia, discrimination, anti- Semitism and intolerance is ECRIs major goal. ECRI considers it most important to bring its recommendations to the attention of the organisations of the civil society in order to promote national discussion on its proposals. Annually ECRI arranges a few national round tables in which its country report and various problems of racism, etc. in the country concerned are discussed.
