The Netherlands: Complaints about discrimination rise


Dutch News:

Anti-discrimination agencies and call centres saw complaints rise 5% in 2011 compared with the year-earlier period.

The 23 agencies and call centres received 6,391 complaints, most of them about racial discrimination. That number rose from 2,572 to 2,918.

Over a quarter of the complaints were concerned with the work environment, with many people giving race as the reason they were refused a job.

The central anti-discrimination agency in Amsterdam says the reason for the rise could be because more people know where to complain.
