EUMC Migrants, Minorities and Housing report

Migrants face housing discrimination and disadvantage such as violent
physical attacks aimed at deterring minorities from certain
neighbourhoods and denying access to accommodation on the grounds of the
applicant’s skin colour, according to a new report from the EUMC
released on 11 January 2006 titled "Migrant, Minorities and Housing:
Expulsion, discrimination, and anti-discrimination”. The report also 
concludes that “integration of minorities in neighbourhoods can become
heavily politicised”. 

The report was based on information supplied by EUMC’s national focal
points and can be found at:
