ECRI'S LISTSERVE

“Ethnic” statistics and data protection 
 
ECRI is pleased to announce the release of its study on «"Ethnic"
statistics and data protection in the Council of Europe countries»,
which was prepared for ECRI by Mr Patrick Simon, researcher at the
Institut National d'Etudes Demographiques (INED). 

The study presents an overview of the existing legal and practical
framework for ethnic data collection in Europe and provides a basis for
answering the question of whether the data protection laws really hinder
the collection of the data needed to combat racial discrimination, or
whether the unsatisfactory state of statistics on this type of
discrimination is due to other factors.
