Democratic citizenshipHuman Rights and DiscriminationPriorities

Across Europe, racism, xenophobia and discrimination continue to affect many people because of their racial or ethnic origin, migrant background and/or religious beliefs. The consequences of this violence, although different in various contexts, are particularly serious for young Afro-descendants, Muslims, Roma and those with a migrant background, who very often find themselves facing multiple forms of discrimination, including those related to gender.

Butterfly Effect, funded by the EC CERV programme, is based on the idea that small variations in initial conditions produce large variations in the long-term behavior of a community. It addresses the issue of racial incidents which young people from minorities and migrant backgrounds often fall victim to. The project aims to strengthen the capacity of young people, the educational community and youth organisations to address hate speech and crime and support young victims through an intersectional and gender-sensitive approach.
