Transatlantic Discourse on Integration: "Barriers to Integration and Efforts to remove them: Racism, Discrimination and Anti-Discrimination", November 2, 2004

Supported by the German Marshall Fund of the United States the european forum for migration studies (efms) organized the transatlantic expert workshop "Barriers to Integration and Efforts to remove them: Racism, Discrimination and Anti-Discrimination" on November 2, 2004 in Berlin. The workshop brought together representatives from administration and foundations, academia, NGOs and the media.

After an introductory session on sociological terms and concepts as well as empirical findings on racism and discrimination, the legal background and current developments in anti-discrimination legislation were presented. This was followed by a presentation and discussion of concrete measures to combat racism and discrimination and their efficiency. On the basis of a transatlantic comparative perspective it was discussed whether measures can be transferred from one country to the other, considering the respective legal, societal and historical context.

The conference report can be found here.
