Stop the Silence: A Snapshot of Racism in Cork

Tue, November 27, 2012



Stop the Silence: A Snapshot of Racism in Cork was compiled by our Racist Reporting Office Simon Prim based on Nasc’s racist reporting mechanism, a third party mechanism designed to give victims and witnesses the opportunity to report a racist or racially motivated incident confidentially and to receive support in making an official report to An Garda Síochána if the incident is deemed to be a crime.  As part of the research for the report, Nasc also conducted a ‘snapshot’ survey on racism in Cork which was used to get a sense for people’s attitudes to and experiences of racism in Cork.  The report was launched by GAA star Seán Óg Ó hAilpín on 27th November 2012.
