Les Essentiels on the 2018 report on the fight against racism

National rapporteur on the fight against racism, the national human rights commission publishes its 28th report on the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia.

2018 was marked by an overall rise in racist acts reported to law enforcement. This increase is to be put into perspective through a detailed analysis of these figures and in light of an overall downward trend in racist acts reported since 2015. In addition, it can be observed that the tolerance index has climbed two points this year.

The racist phenomenon in France calls for a high level of vigilance, however, for it remains vastly under-reported and often manifests itself in subtle forms of rejection that are not always easy to characterize or denounce by its victims.
