Original title: Discriminatiemonitor niet-westerse migranten op de arbeidsmarkt 2010.
Discrimination on the Dutch labour market is a reality. Why do some Dutch employers prefer to take on Mark as an employee rather than Mohammed? For this study we interviewed 106 recruitment officers about their selection behaviour. Do they think that non-Western migrants are just as suitable as native Dutch candidates? What perceptions and experiences do they have of non-Western migrants? What reasons do they have for choosing a native Dutch candidate even where candidates are equivalent in terms of training and work experience?
The study also investigates whether any trends in discrimination can be observed, and if so, how they can be explained. A recurrent part of the Monitor also involves the compiling of an inventory of complaints and rulings about labour market discrimination.
The Discrimination Monitor was compiled at the request of the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
