Infrastructure and Commitment

The measures found under Objective One institutionalise the approach to implementing the Anti-Racism Strategy:

Measure 2 supports the whole-of-Government approach by providing for the creation of a high-level Inter-Ministerial Committee including the equality body to ensure mainstreaming of anti-racism and intercultural inclusion across all policy fields and public services.

Measure 3 embodies the whole-of-society approach by creating the Anti-Racism Platform. The Platform is an infrastructure composed of representatives from minority groups, civil society organisations, international organisations, local councils, academics and social partners; it is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the Strategy and formulating recommendations, when necessary, to ensure the objectives are reached.

Measure 4 provides for a research programme that will serve as a baseline study concerning the experience of members of minority groups with hate speech on the grounds of race and/or ethnicity in Malta. This baseline will enable evaluation of the progress made in the field in the years to come.

The Human Rights Directorate is responsible for annual reporting on the implementation of the Anti-Racism Strategy.
