19th March European Summit Against Racism

On Friday, March 19th, the European Commission organized a Summit Against Racism at the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (21 March). This Summit, co-hosted by the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the ARDI Intergroup of the European Parliament, is a historic event since it the first of its kind organized by the Commission. As Baron Woolley of Woodford said during his speech, the rise of BLM movement last spring across the world created a window opportunity to talk about racism in high-level politics. The Commission expressed that the Summit against Racism will be reconducted each year from now on.

The purpose of the Summit was to address the implementation of the European Anti-Racism Action Plan. It engaged “all relevant stakeholders in discussing and setting priorities on how to eradicate racism in all its forms in the European Union, prompting strong commitments in particular by the representatives of the Member States and of EU institutions on the implementation of the Action plan and the EU anti-racism agenda in general.” This Summit also aimed to set up cooperation with civil society such as organizations working on issues related to ethnic and racial minorities.
