Save the Children Sweden

This report was produced as part of Save the Children Sweden’s and Save the Children Sweden Youth Council’s project Unga röster om diskriminering (Young Voices on Discrimination.) The report is the result of a collaboration between children and adults, and is based on survey responses from 1,117 pupils and interviews with 33 children in Year 5 in Sweden (i.e. aged 11–12).  It gives a picture of children’s experiences of racism, as well as discrimination and harassment, with a focus on ethnic background, skin colour, culture, language and religion, and highlights the question of whether schools are fulfilling their duty to prevent and combat racism in schools.
