iReport.ie and data on racism in Ireland
INAR launched the iReport Racist Incident Reporting System in July 2013.
Reports can be made directly through iReport.ie website or through one of iReport.ie Reporting Centres organisation. Questions are designed to capture a large amount of detail about racist incidents, including information about where, when and how the incident occurred and details about the victim(s) and perpetrator(s). The system also captures information about why the incident has been perceived as racist, its impact on the victim and/or witnesses, and the interplay with age, gender, sexuality and disability.
Analysis of the data has been carried out by Dr Lucy Michael in consultation with Shane O’Curry, Director of INAR.
Based on data collected through the iReport.ie INAR regularly produces Reports of Racism in Ireland and thematic reports all of which can be downloaded below.
