Since 2020 the societal debate around racism and the Europe's colonial heritage is gaining momentum. This enhanced grassroots, political and institutional attention to structural racism in Europe is an opportunity for the EU to change course and provide meaningful policy answers. Against this background, the EU has launched a EU Anti-racism Action Plan proposing several measures that range from reviewing current EU policies to adopting new policy measures and funding programmes to combat racism and discrimination in access to services. At the same time, the Action Plan focuses on addressing structural racism within European society and EU institutions. What is the role of researchers and community stakeholders, including migrants, in advancing the EU antiracism agenda? How can they be involved in this topic, particularly on monitoring and assessing current and future policy and practice across Europe?
