The project aims at exploring the degree of awareness of the social partners in the Racial Equality Directive and is looking at their responses to the national legislation that has been transposed as a result of the Racial Equality Directive. It will further explore the factors behind the low level of complaints of racial and ethnic discrimination in employment. The project will identify good practices in the variety of transposition measures actually adopted, to analyse the impact of the Directive on behaviours, and to formulate opinions and conclusions on how the Directive could be made more effective. The project covers all member countries of the European Union. FORBA is responsible for the Austrian national report.
