UNCLASSIFIED Analysed by place of birth, 37 percent of those born in Portugal or Madeira, 28 percent of those born in Poland, 21 percent of those born in another European country and 6 percent of those born in Jersey or elsewhere in the British Isles reported having been discriminated against in Jersey on grounds of race or nationality in the previous 12 months. The most frequently cited place at which discrimination was reported to have occurred was at work (36% of those who reported being discriminated against), followed by in Government departments or parishes (27%) and when applying for a job (23%). For those who reported experiencing discrimination at work, discrimination was reported to be on grounds of race for a third (34%).

For those who reported experiencing discrimination at Government departments or parishes, discrimination was reported to be on grounds of race for a sixth (16%).

Government diversity strategy and data collection on race and ethnicity The Government of Jersey collects some data in respect of nationality, although, until recently, limited information has been available on race and ethnicity. The Customs and Immigration Service captures immigrant data based on nationality and is searchable by that field. Their law enforcement nominal data also captures nationality and apparent ethnicity (IC code) and is searchable by those fields. Similarly, the Prison Service records the country of origin of each prisoner on admission, as well as their ethnicity. They are able to produce a snapshot of the prison population based on these fields at any time. The Jersey Police have records on place of birth for both victims and offenders dating back to 2008. However, this information is not automatically captured and has to be manually collated. (See for example Appendix 2). During 2014, the Government of Jersey has developed a diversity / discrimination strategy which aims to encourage behaviours and culture change to address discrimination; to promote clear accountability for dealing with discrimination and attracting a diverse workforce. A comprehensive training programme has been developed for all government staff to support non-discriminatory behaviour and data will be collected for the entire 4 UNCLASSIFIED /var/filecabinet/temp/converter_assets/79/b4/79b4e3c7f8353a14b0b24747c3b2b9a56460f76d.doc

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
