People of African Descent Experience Widespread Racism in Europe

Afrophobia is an ongoing and widespread problem in Europe, with Black people experiencing racial discrimination in education, employment, health, policing and the criminal justice system, according to a new report.

The survey, Afrophobia in Europe, prepared by the Brussels-based European Network Against Racism, asked people of African descent and Black Europeans about their experiences with racism and discrimination in daily life. According to ENAR, the anti-migrant rhetoric in the European Union has resulted in a shift toward less support for anti-racism issues.
