EN

E-002895/2021

Answer given by Mr Reynders

on behalf of the European Commission

(1.9.2021)

The Commission adopted the EU anti-racism action plan[1] in September 2020 that announced the appointment of a Commission coordinator for anti-racism. The coordinator role is to liaise closely with people with a minority racial or ethnic origin and to interact with Member States, the European Parliament as well as civil society.

In addition, the coordinator joins forces with Commission services to ensure a successful implementation of the measures contained in the action plan. These measures cover a comprehensive range of policy areas including legislative and awareness-raising measures as laid out in the action plan.

The resources in relation to the coordinator are covered from the Commission’s operational budget; there are no additional funds allocated at the disposal of the coordinator.
