Institute for Social and Economic Research, May 2019

This research looks at how ethnic minorities in the UK experience harassment and its impact on their lives.  The research finds that one in ten people from ethnic minorities in England have reported experiencing ethnic and racial harassment in a public place, and almost double that number have reported feeling unsafe or avoiding public places.  The report finds that experiencing ethnic and racial harassment can affect mental health and recommends that harassment and discrimination are considered in relation to the provision of mental health services.
