The UNDETERRED research programme is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon-Europe calls for projects. The aim of this research programme is to analyse the mechanisms of unintentional discrimination experienced by young people aged 18 to 35 in the areas of housing, healthcare, employment and education.

The main objectives of this action research are:

  • to survey the target populations, in order to identify rules, procedures, norms and practices that lead to discrimination;
  • to produce an initial typology of the unintentional processes that contribute to inequalities in access and opportunities for the project’s target groups in different institutions and companies in the sectors mentioned;
  • once these processes have been identified and brought to light, to propose solutions that could curb systemic discrimination.

UNDETERRED thus represents a phase of experimentation with new designs for public and private action, formalised on the basis of the first phase of research, which is devoted to the identification of norms, procedures, rules and practices at work in the organisations. One of the ambitions of the programme is to co-construct with our non-academic partners the new policies or redesigned systems, subject to experimentation and evaluation.

The consortium consists of research teams from the Universities of Amsterdam, Utrecht, Barcelona (UAB), Bordeaux, Bucharest, Lausanne, Québec (Laval University), several metropolises and various associations supporting immigrant populations, companies and cultural institutions.
