FRA Media release from 27.10.2010: Does discrimination foster violence?

Wednesday, 27 October 2010 20:13

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is publishing results from a survey of 3,000 Muslim and non-Muslim young people about their experiences of and attitudes towards discrimination, social marginalisation and violence.

The results indicate that in the three Member States where the survey took place (France, Spain and the United Kingdom) most young people – regardless of their religious background – do not support violence. On the other hand, those young people who have been victims of discrimination or violence are at greater risk of engaging in violence themselves.
