In INAR we strive, with the help of our Network, to collect the evidence of racism in Ireland, increase reporting of racist incidents and provide support to those affected.
Most of the people who experience or witness racism don’t report it as they face multiple barriers in reporting it or simply don’t know how and where to do so. Because of that, the vast majority of racist incidents in Ireland go unrecorded and unacknowledged by the state and the wider society, meaning that racism simply stays invisible and can’t be effectively addressed.
To overcome these barriers INAR developed the iReport.ie, easy to use an online reporting system which guarantees confidentiality, is written in plain English and can be filled in anonymously if the person so wishes on any device with an internet connection.
The system also allows for people to be supported in recording racist incidents by our network of iReport Reporting Centres working locally with communities most at risk of racism.
iReport.ie reporting centres
Currently, there are over 40 organisations across Ireland acting as iReport.ie Reporting Centres where you can get the following support:
- Receive support with reporting what happened to iReport.ie online system so there is a record of the racist incident.
- Depending on the capacity and expertise of the Reporting Centre, get further advice on where to get redress and how to complain to various bodies.
- Some specialised organisations may provide advocacy service, help filling forms etc.
- Find out how the iReport.ie works and why it’s important to report racism
