This school agenda has been produced by the FRA in the context of the 2007 European Year of Equal Opportunities for All.

European legislation is helping to ensure that everyone has a right to be treated equally, regardless of their race, sex or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, disabilities, age or sexual orientation. These laws aim to stop discrimination in the areas of daily life such as education, employment and housing. (http://ec.europa.eu/employment_social/fundamental_rights/index_en.htm)
  8. 8. NOTES
  9. 9. According to Article 13 of the Amsterdam Treaty, the EU has the competence to take appropriate action to combat discrimination based on sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation. (EU, Treaty of Amsterdam) Discrimination We can talk of discrimination when someone is treated badly because he or she is different. • ere is a cause (for instance the ‘race’, gender, ethnic origin etc. of the person or group Th discriminated against) • ere are actions that are qualified as discrimination (for instance rejection – not wanting Th to have a black person as a friend, restriction – prohibiting entrance of gay people to a music club, exclusion – not hiring women etc.) • ere are consequences, which can also be the purpose of the discriminatory action. Th Sometimes, the only way to tell whether there is discrimination is by looking at the effects on groups of people. (http://ec.europa.eu/employment_social/fundamental_rights/index_en.htm) Discrimination More examples of discrimination: is not always easy - job advertisements that say “disabled people need to spot! In the not apply” or “foreigners not allowed” following pages you - calling people insulting names because of their will find some of the colour or their age or because of some physical or different forms it mental disability is discriminatory and degrading can take.

But this doesn’t mean that he or she must be a second-class human being because of these differences. May people be much more open- minded to foreigners and their way of life, that’s my wish!” Rivka, 21, Germany

  15. 15. Direct discrimination Occurs when a person is treated worse than another in a comparable situation for no other reason than their racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation. (http://ec.europa.eu/employment_social/fundamental_rights/rights/gloss_en.htm) Direct discrimination Philip, 22, says “I was refused entry into a nightclub because of my skin colour.” Everyone may be discriminated against on some occasion or other. What could be the grounds that you might be discriminated against? Why does discrimination take place and what forms does it take? In Italy, the owner of a bar in Verona was found guilty for unlawful discrimination by the Check out the European Union’s anti- Court of Cassation for discrimination campaign at having refused to serve www.stop-discrimination.info and the non-EU citizens coffee in comic strip “What? Me? A racist?” at order to keep them away http://ec.europa.eu/publications/young/ from his bar. txt_whatme_racist_en.pdf (EUMC, 2006 Annual Report)
  16. 16. Indirect discrimination Did you know that 51% of the people surveyed by Eurobarometer think that not enough effort is being made in their country to fight Indirect discrimination? (Eurobarometer, Discrimination in the discrimination European Union) When a provision, criterion or practice that seems neutral is introduced, but it turns out that it harms or excludes certain categories of people. So it looks like everyone is getting equal treatment, but in fact this is not really the case. Indirect discrimination can be unintentional. (http://ec.europa.eu/ employment_social/fundamental_ rights/rights/gloss_en.htm) Example of indirect discrimination: when an employer insists that a candidate should speak a particular language, yet that language is not actually needed for the job.

Once I’ve successfully finished my studies in a business college I started applying for jobs with the same self-confidence as all my class mates. Once a respected company had a job offer for which I fulfilled all criteria. I sent my file to them, but I didn’t get any answer. As I didn’t want to let this job pass me by, I decided to insist, this time by going personally to see the manager. On his table there were two piles of papers – one with Austrian surnames and the other only with foreign names. He told me the job had been already filled, but I knew from my friends this was not true because interviews were still undergoing.” Stanislav, 24, Austria

  31. 31. Racism and racial discrimination Is a type of discrimination based on the beliefs that distinctive human characteristics, abilities etc. are determined by ‘race’ and that there are superior and inferior ‘races’. (CoE, COMPASS) “Any doctrine of superiority based on racial differentiation is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous, and there is no justification for racial discrimination, in theory or in practice, anywhere.” (UN, Preamble to the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination) There is a special European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), which belongs to the Council of Europe (www.coe.int/ecri/) In 2000, the Council of the European Union passed the so-called Racial Equality Directive, which implements the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin.

  32. 32. The Benefits of a diverse Europe Recent research with companies across Europe shows how creating and managing a diverse organisation can provide real benefits, whether they are in the private, public or not-for-profit sectors, whether they are large or small. This observation is also central to the 2007 European Year of Equal Opportunities for All. These benefits can include: • Attracting, recruiting and retaining people from a wide “talent” base; • Reducing the costs of labour turnover and absenteeism; • Contributing to employee flexibility and responsiveness; • Building employee commitment, morale and “discretionary effort; • Managing better the impact of globalisation and technological change; • Enhancing creativity and innovation. (EC, The Business Case for Diversity Good Practices in the Workplace) Don’t forget, you have fundamental rights!

One day I was reading a book on a bench in the school courtyard when some classmates came around. They started calling me names and took the book away from me. It was not the first time they were harassing me like that. I told them this was not funny and asked nicely for my book back, but they started pushing me. I wonder whether someone can really feel good about hurting someone else.
