A qualitative research study of strategic interventions to address afro-phobia in the european union
Olaiya, H. B. Adediran
Empirical evidence highlights historical and contemporary manifestations of Afro-phobia hinder the implementation of anti-discrimination norms. Black, African, African diaspora and people of African descent are used here to refer to “descendants of enslaved Africans (…) African migrants and their descendants” as illustrated by (Nwabuzo: 2015).
I argue thematic objectives of the International Decade for People of African Descent can be linked to achievement of sustainable development goals for more successful outcomes. Notably critical evaluation of the achievement of SDG 10, i.e. to reduce inequality within and among countries, is at the core of my qualitative research study. Target 10.2 is one of two targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which specifically mentions racial or ethnic origin (IAEG-SDGs: 2017). However, the potential for flawed data collection remains despite full disaggregation of equality data is advocated by UN GA Res. 68/261.
I aim to critically evaluate norm implementation illustrating: state parties’ interpretation of racial or ethnic origin: collaborations for strategic policy interventions to address Afro-phobia in Europe. The scope of this study relies on the centrality of African experiences, perceptions and understanding as cognitive, structural and functional aspects for interpreting and creating new knowledge. My research tactics therefore include African narratives on policymaking initiatives at the supranational, regional, national and local levels; e.g. strategic interventions to address Afro-phobia in the European Parliament.
My thesis therefore raises awareness of links between IDPAD and the 2030 Agenda: e.g. some European countries do not collect disaggregated equality data; people of African descent remain “invisible” in statistical analyses despite being marginalised in our access to human rights. In summary, empirical findings of my qualitative research study illustrate the relevance of SDG targets and indicators to IDPAD’s thematic objectives of recognition, justice and development. These links are useful for promoting universal human rights and the principle of equality: for an inclusive holistic approach to the 2030 Agenda which strategically address Afro-phobia.
