Les Essentiels on the 2019 Report on the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia

Independent national rapporteur on the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia since 1990, the CNCDH presented its 2019 Report on the fight against racism to the Prime Minister on 18th June 2020.

Independent national rapporteur for nearly 30 years

Appointed independent national rapporteur on the fight against racism in all its forms in 1990, the National Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CNCDH) submits an annual report to Government which provides an overview of racism in France, as well as the policies rolled out by institutions of the Republic and civil society to combat such phenomena.

Situational analysis of racism in France in 2019

Vastly under-reported, racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia are often demonstrated via subtle forms of rejection that are not always easy to characterise or denounce by victims.

An increase in acts and discourse of a racist nature was identified in 2019, this in addition to considerable volumes recorded in 2018. While the tolerance index remains largely stable, prejudice, discrimination and racist acts continue and require co-development of adapted policies in order to be addressed.

Les Essentiels

Alongside its report on racism, the CNCDH presents “Les Essentiels”, which offers a synthetic and didactic approach to the main trends observed by the CNCDH.
Structured around six themes and two focus points, Les Essentiels covers essential information from the 2019 Report on the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia and is intended to be widely read and circulated.
