• Introduction


Do you consider yourself the victim of discrimination due to the colour of your skin or your ethnic origins? Are you experiencing racism? This is not something you need to accept! You have the right to non-discriminatory treatment. And you are not powerless. There are various approaches to tackling discrimination and racism.

This online legal advisor seeks to explain the courses of action available to you in combating racist discrimination. On the one hand, it informs you about your legal possibilities but also out-of-court procedures, when judicial proceedings aren’t deemed to be necessary.
