#AFROZENSUS Online survey

Online survey #AFROZENSUS

For the first time, Black people in Germany will be asked about their life realities and experiences of discrimination in a large online survey.


More than one million people of African descent live in Germany. #AFROZENSUS is the first large-scale online survey to record their life realities, experiences of discrimination and perspectives. The aim is to use the results to empower the Black communities in Germany and to promote concrete political measures against racist discrimination and for the empowerment of the Black communities. Funded by the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency, #AFROZENSUS is a cooperation between Citizens for Europe gUG, Each One Teach One (EOTO) and the DeZIM Institute

„So far, politicians question the relevance of anti-Black racism. The life realities of Black people in Germany are often simply not seen. So far they are neither in the focus of science nor politics. We want to change that by interviewing as many Black people as possible for the first time“, says Daniel Gyamerah, head of our division Advocating for Inclusion, in a Taz-Interview.
The #Afrozensus online survey is intended to provide the first comprehensive picture of the communities - how they assess their life in Germany and what expectations they have of society and politics. On the basis of the results, concrete recommendations will be made to German policy-makers to reduce racial discrimination and to protect and empower Black people in Germany. The results will also be made available to the community. In this way, one of the youngest population groups in Germany, which is strongly affected by intersectional discrimination, is finally gaining the attention it needs for better representation of its interests.
For the project, which is funded by the German Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency within the framework of the UN Decade for People of African Descent, Citizens For Europe gUG cooperates with Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V. and the DeZIM Institute. The research team of our Advocating for Inclusion unit is made up of experts in research and counselling on discrimination, who pursue a human rights-based and intersectional approach. With #AFROZENSUS we want to show what Black communities need to live in Germany on equal terms.

A survey from the community for the community

#AFROZENSUS is inspired by the Black Census project in the USA, in which 30,000 African Americans participated, as well as by the Europe-wide study Being Black in Europe by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). The questionnaire includes questions about the demographic and socio-economic background of the respondents (e.g. age, place of residence, income, gender, diasporic references, etc.), questions about experiences of discrimination (e.g. about racial profiling or in the health sector), about the respondents' sense of rights and engagement (e.g. Do you know your rights and relevant advice centres? Which organisations do you trust - from trade unions to political parties?), as well as questions about areas of discrimination and the need for action (e.g. how comprehensively do you assess discrimination in education, health, employment, police & justice? Where do you experience it most strongly?). In addition, questions are also asked about demands on politicians.
"Here we are doing a survey from the community for the community. Participation is of course voluntary and data protection is guaranteed, all raw data remain in the hands of the Black community, are stored on protected servers of the Black community and so on", Daniel Gyamerah emphasizes. As jointly responsible for data processing (Art. 26 DSGVO), EOTO e.V. and CFE gUG adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
The report should be available at the end of 2020.

Vielfalt im Film – Diversity in the film sector

Online survey Vielfalt im Film

For an inclusive film industry in front and behind the camera

How diverse is the German-speaking film and television industry? Who is represented and how, and who is not? What exclusions and precarious working conditions exist and how can we promote the development of an inclusive working environment in the film industry? The initiative and online survey Vielfalt im Film (ViF) is the first comprehensive survey of anti-discrimination and equality data in the German-speaking film and television industry. 30,000 filmmakers in German-speaking countries will be surveyed on equal opportunities, diversity and discrimination in the film industry.

VIELFALT ENTSCHEIDET-DIVERSITY IN LEADERSHIP

Collection of anti-discrimination and equality data

We work on strategies for a more inclusive society.

People of Color and Black people are underrepresented in leadership positions. To accelerate equitable change, we conduct research on diversity in organizations and collect data that help them to diversify, uncover discrimination, and become more inclusive. We develop strategies, demands and concepts for the development of inclusive administrations, organizations and companies. Aided by our network of community organisations as well as legal, policy and technology experts, our team conducts research to identify hurdles and evaluate policies and activities designed to enhance and deepen inclusion.
