FoDiRa: Research Network Discrimination and Racism

The FoDiRa joint project systematically analyses key areas in which racist prejudices can arise, reproduce, or intensify in everyday life. In particular, research is being conducted into the most relevant areas of life: education, work, housing, and health. The fields of (social) media, sports, and the internet are also being analyzed. The focus is on further developing and using innovative quantitative research methods to analyze discrimination and racism. These will be incorporated into the National Discrimination and Racism Monitor (NaDiRa). 

Innovative data, such as process-generated data or data obtained through web scraping, is used in six projects. Three projects are developing semi-automated text analysis methods for use in racism research. Four projects use experimental methods, and three utilize geodata or regional/local variation to investigate causes.
