This page contains research and statistical data on discrimination: its nature and extent, the reasons for it, and its consequences in Finland. The Discrimination Monitoring Group coordinated by the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for the page’s maintenance. The group consists of representatives of various official agencies, research institutes, NGOs and equality, gender equality and self-governing bodies.

The monitoring of discrimination is a component in the monitoring of the implementation of fundamental rights and it lends its support to actions associated with the implementation and monitoring of international human rights conventions.
