The LIBE Committee, in association with the EMPL Committee, organised a public hearing on anti-racism on Tuesday, 30 November 2021, in Brussels and with remote participation.

Racism and xenophobia continue to be relevant topics on EU's agenda. As a result of the EP resolution following the killing of George Floyd, the Commission developed the EU Anti-Racism Action Plan 2020-2025, adopted in September 2020. The objective of the hearing is to assess the EU anti-racism agenda and identify further steps to ensure its full development and implementation.

The hearing benefited by the participation of representatives of the European Commission, EU Agency for Fundamental Rights, Council of Europe, the European Network against Racism, the Belgian Coalition for the National Action Plan Against Racism, the European Roma Rights Centre. An incoming study on anti-racism will also be presented.

This hearing was part of a series of discussions organized by the LIBE Committee on specific topics related to anti-racism, such as the legal and policy framework against racism and xenophobia, or police violence against Roma, debated on the 9th of November 2021.
