EU study: Muslims complain about discrimination in the workplace –

Thursday, September 21st, 2017 | bitcoin updates

Prejudices, harassment or disadvantages in finding a job and finding a place to live: Europe's Muslims continue to make considerable discrimination experiences in everyday life. 39 per cent of them report in a new survey of the European Fundamental Rights Agency about incidents in the past five years – and this is repeated, on average five times in twelve months. Over harassment and insults reported 27 per cent, violently attacked two per cent. The religion itself offered only the second point of attack (17 per cent); they were often recognized or classified as migrants (27 percent), their skin color was the third most common single cause (9 percent). A scarcely one-third of Muslim women with headscarfs have to be guilty of public abuse, but also a small quarter (23 per cent) of those who do not wear it. For the survey, last year, the agency surveyed 10,500 women and men who consider themselves Muslim in 15 EU countries – Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, the United Kingdom and Cyprus. All were over 16 years of age and came from families with immigration history, so they had immigrated themselves or children of at least one immigrant immigrated to the EU. For this group, the investigation is representative, explained the agency based in Vienna.Muslim women fight more often than menThe strongest discrimination in everyday life is experienced by Muslims at the workplace or at work. Only five per cent had experienced nothing like this in the workplace, only one per cent in search of a job. Of continual incidents at work or more than ten times a year before the survey, however, 27 percent of Muslim workers reported that a further 40 percent of them remembered two to five experiences. A large majority of those affected did not resist, often because they did not believe they will find help: 88 percent said they did not complain to any supervisor or anti-discriminator, or to the police. Men are more reserved than women: of them only 10 per cent of what they had seen as discrimination, 15 per cent of women. Three quarters (72 per cent) also do not know that there are points of contact against discrimination – "that could explain the low display numbers ", says the report. A good two-thirds also do not know that there are corresponding laws in their country, albeit with significant differences between countries and groups of origin, from a low level in Italy and Malta to a very high one in France and Sweden.

Heimatliebe pronounced astounding, but in the trend of earlier investigations: despite discouraging experiences, Muslims feel connected to Europe. Three-quarters (76 per cent) of them called themselves "strongly connected" with their EU homeland. Only two percent feel no bond at all. In Finland, the weakest is the weakest in Italy, followed by the Netherlands, Austria and Greece. Germany is in the EU average. Muslims' confidence in the public and democratic institutions is even greater than that of non-Muslim and non-immigrant populations. It is the police, the judiciary and the national parliaments of the EU's home countries. On a scale of ten, Muslims give 6.6 points to the legal system in their respective countries, while the general population is only 5.4, parliaments get 5.7 from Muslims, but only 4.5 points from the average population. For this comparison, the agency drew the data from all the EU citizens from the EU Social Survey of 2014.Features, but not sexual All Muslims, 92% are also open to mixed neighborhoods with people of other ideological backgrounds or ethnic backgrounds Origin. As far as sexual minorities are concerned, there are limits to tolerance: nearly a quarter, 23 per cent, of respondents would rather not have gay, lesbian, and bisexual neighbors. And with transgender or transsexuals, even 30 percent of Muslims have problems – with women being more open to any kind of neighbors than men. "The results of this study show the general lack of progress in the fight against discrimination and hate stories," writes the Director of the EU- Michael O'Flaherty, the preamble to the report. He refers to the first study published by his agency in 2008. At that time, 30 per cent of Muslim respondents reported discrimination, which is less than the 39 per cent reported today. People from North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa were the most negative in Europe. And the willingness to fight against it has also declined – at that time, 79 per cent of those affected did not do anything. Little progress, except for the police. However, the report also contains evidence of progress, such as the police: that policemen stop them because of their appearance and, as in those days, say about 40 per cent of the European Muslims who were involved in such controls. But only 16 percent reported that they were affected by such "police stops" – in 2008, 25 percent had experienced them. In the USA and the UK, so-called "racial profiling", ie, controls targeting ethnic characteristics, have long been criticized. In Germany, those affected also increasingly defended themselves in the last few years and went to court.
