How does the law respond to racism in institutions? In order to answer this question, legal scholarship must deal with how racism is to be defined, which manifestations exist and to what extent these are covered by German, European and international anti-discrimination law. The Policy Paper ‘Legal Assessment of Racism in Institutions’ (in German) provides answers to these questions. The policy paper is a result of the sub-project C01 of the study "Institutions & Racism" of the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) under the direction of Prof. Dr. Daniel Thym and Prof. Dr. Judith Froese. Additional information can be found in the open access edited volume ‘Constitutional Law and Racism’ (in German), published in the autumn of 2022.
