Call for researchers / experts: ENAR Shadow Report on racism and discrimination in employment

ENAR is seeking researchers and experts to collect and analyze data at national level within the 28 EU Member States inorder to respond to an ENAR questionaire. As an update to the 2012/2013 Shadow Report, the focus of the research will be racism and discrimination in employment. The data provided through the questionnaire responses will feed into the 2016/2017 European Shadow Report.

ENAR’s annual Shadow Reports have proved to be a major tool for advocacy and coordinated action for anti-racism, towards national governments, European and international institutions, and the media.

Since the first European Shadow Report in 2004 and following subsequent changes, the findings from the Shadow Reports have fed into ENAR’s advocacy and communication at national and European levels. The reports are unique, in that they bring together the latest information and developments to help build a counter-perspective on racism. The reports reflect the views of NGOs and victims of discrimination at local, national and EU levels. With statistical and comparative data, the Shadow Reports have a demonstrable impact on influencing policy development and bringing about necessary reforms.

This call covers the reporting period from 2013 to mid-2017. We are asking researchers/experts to identify reliable data and concrete cases (with dates and links to primary sources) of incidences of racism and discrimination in employment. The questionnaire, still in development, will focus on areas such as access to employment, discrimination in the workplace,employment of women of colour … as well as good/best practice from NGOs, governments and other stakeholders.

The researchers responding to this call are expected to:
1. Carry out research in one of the 28 EU Member States plus Iceland in order to respond to the ENAR questionnaire.

2.Ensure and support the evidence and quality of the findings by generating a bibliography that consists of at least 20-30 sources.

3.Respond to the questionnaire on time and consult and liaise with the Senior Research Officer and ENAR Secretariat throughout the whole process.

As compensation for the duties listed above, the researchers shall receive a maximum amount of 2,000 EUR. This payment includes all administrative costs and taxes, when requested also VAT.
