RED (Rights Equality and Diversity) European Network
The RED-network consisted of 17 scientific institutes and civil society organisations. The Institute for Rights Equality and Diversity (i-RED) in Athens was the coordinator of the network.
As part of the RED-network, a web-portal has been created which posts both background information and the latest news relating to discrimination and racism from 20 EU member countries as well as the EU as a whole.

The portal was also meant to function as an early warning system to combat discrimination and racism.
