Project Information

Development and preparation of the "National Discrimination and Racism Monitor"

Sub-project "Racism in the health care of refugees - The interplay of subjective effects of racism and institutional racism in access to welfare state offers"

The short project deals with the question of what effects racism and racial discrimination have on the health care of refugees. The aim is to use the example of substance-consuming refugees to examine the often-neglected topic of racism in health care. It is examined whether and with which (racist) framework conditions and structures refugees are confronted in Germany and how these affect access to health care. In addition, a look is taken at the subjective effects of racism: How is racism experienced, does it play a role as a disease-causing factor? Is institutional racism subjectively important? What different experiences are made? These perspectives enable a view of the linked racist inclusions and exclusions in the German health care system.
