Racial discrimination reports up 61% in Italy

'Could suggest increased public sensitivity' says UNAR

Racial discrimination reports up 61% in Italy

Rome, July 30 - Italy's National Office against Racial Discrimination (UNAR) investigated 1,283 cases in 2012, up 61% on the year, according to its Contact Center. The UNAR emphasized that the data does not necessarily mean incidents have increased, but could indicate a higher sensitivity to possible discrimination by the public at large and a greater tendency to report. The majority of complaints, 19.6%, came from the northern Lombardy region around Milan, followed by 14.4% in the central Lazio region around Rome.
