The RED portal is a map-based, user friendly independent tool providing a birds’ eye overview and a comparative insight of the situation regarding racism, xenophobia and discrimination against migrants and minorities, as well as positive and policy initiatives promoting equality in different EU Member States (17 countries are covered in the RED System 1st implementation - 2012). Its main components are the RED Early Warning System and the RED Atlas of Racism, Discrimination & Equality.
Strength of the RED portal is the unique set of RED indicators built for the RED System and Atlas.
A thorough set of 125 policy, legislation and factual questions/indicators and of 38 key statistic and demographic figures expands beyond the main areas combating racism, hate crime and discrimination against migrants and minorities, to the themes of equality and good practice in the RED Network member states.
The RED indicators range from qualitative to quantitative, and from legal to sociolegal and factual questions/indicators on legislation and its effective implementation in Member States.
The RED Atlas reports yearly and updates on a ‘real-time’ basis:
· Country information on racism & discrimination legislation & policy implementation in key areas of legislation and social life (once & updates)
· Country statistics of Racist-hate crime and discrimination (yearly)
· Country statistics – demographics and economics of migrants & minorities (yearly)
