Around half of the respondents to a recent survey said that racism is not taken seriously enough in Finland. However, almost as many respondents thought the opposite and believed that racism is already taken seriously enough here.

In this survey, we are looking for personal experiences of racism. In what kind of situations does racism occur?

The survey uses the Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare's (THL) definition of racism:

Racism is a way of thinking in which groups of people are defined as inferior based on, for example, ethnicity, skin colour, nationality, culture, mother tongue or religion.

We would like you to respond to our survey using the form below. We are looking for interviewees, both on-camera and off-camera, to cover the subject on TV 1's A-Studio current affairs programme and for articles on the Yle website.
