Recycling Hatred: ENAR book publication on the different forms of racism in Europe

In February 2013, ENAR published Recycling Hatred: Racism(s) in Europe Today. The book is a collection of essays that brings together various discussions between academics, equality experts, and civil society activists, who participated in the ENAR/OSF symposium on the Varieties of European Racism(s) in Brussels on 27-28 September 2012. The publication provides evidence of new and different forms of racism and identifies distinctive experiences of racism between different minority populations. It considers why some minorities are able to have their issues of concern on the political agenda, while other minorities’ preoccupations are left unexplored, leading to their perceptions among the wider public of ’invisibility’. It also addresses the interconnections between institutional racism (structures and laws that legislate for exclusion) and popular racist culture; distinguishing, for instance, the apparent challenges in quantifying racism, monitoring equality, dealing with hate crime and hate speech offenders, ensuring effective access to justice for victims, protecting human rights defenders, curtailing ethnic/racial profiling and other forms of state racism, and more.
