II European Anti-Racist Summit 2022During the Summit, to which Fundación Secretariado Gitano will attend, a focus of the importance and need to continue the efforts in the fight against racism and discrimination in the European Union.

On 21 March 2022, the European Commission organises the European Anti-Racism Summit 2022 with the support of the ARDI Intergroup of the European Parliament and Council of Europe’s European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI/CoE) with the involvement of civil society, equality bodies and grassroots organisations. This year, the meaningful participation of youth in the fight against racism will also be highlighted within the context of the European Year of Youth 2022.

We would like to highlight the Spanish presence in this II European Summit by the Chief Inspector of the Operational Response Area in the Local Police Service of Fuenlabrada and expert consultant of the Council of Europe, David Martín Abanades. David Martín is the author of a Handbook on Community Policing published by the COE, and will offer his experience and expertise in the management of police diversity, and his approach to policing as a service to citizens to protect their rights.

One year after the first Anti-Racism Summit, held in March 2021, the second edition will be an opportune time to highlight some of the accomplishments achieved up to that point. For instance, the Subgroup on the national implementation of the EU Anti-Racism Action Plan 2020-2025 and the first concrete outcome, the Common guiding principles for action plans against racism and racial discrimination. It is also worth mentioning the setting-up of the Permanent Anti-Racism Civil Society Forum, which  supports the Commission in the implementation of the action plan and participates in a variety of consultative processes.  

The II European Anti-Racism Summit 2022 can be followed through streaming.
