Goals, Principles, Approach and Objectives

​The Anti-Racism Strategy has two goals: confronting and eliminating racism in all its forms, individual, systemic and societal and stimulating and supporting intercultural inclusion.

It was built around four principles: equality, diversity, interaction and participation.

The approach of the Strategy is two-fold. On the one hand, the Anti-Racism Strategy endorses the intersectional approach to tackling discrimination, it embraces the diversity within minority groups and addresses the needs of those groups at intersections between different grounds for discrimination. On the other hand, it adopts a comprehensive and systematic approach to anti-racism and promoting intercultural inclusion, by involving a wide range of stakeholders across society, including Maltese residents themselves, and acting in all policy fields and areas.

The Strategy is divided in four objectives:

  1. Establish an infr​astructure to drive and sustain commitment to and engagement with the goals and objectives of this Strategy.
  2. Achieve planned and systematic approaches to confronting racism and advancing intercultural inclusion across all policy fields and all sectors.
  3. Promote and advance informed public and political discourse characterised by the principles of intercultural inclusion.
  4. Tackle al​l forms of discrimination experienced by minority groups.​
