Les Essentiels on the 2017 report on the fight against racism

National rapporteur on the fight against racism, the national human rights commission publishes its 27th report on the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia.

2017 was marked by stabilisation of the tolerance index and confirms the general downwards trend of racist acts reported to the gendarmerie and police forces, though such a trend must be put into perspective in light of the magnitude of under-reporting. Despite this positive trend, which is a cause for celebration, racism in France remains at a worrying level and a certain increase in the most violent acts requires extreme vigilance, as do the subtler manifestations of rejection that mark many people’s everyday lives.
