Discrimination in Finland 2020 - 2023

This report, published in May 2024 by Finland's Ministry of Justice, examines discrimination and other similar phenomena in Finland during the period 2020 - 2023. A large number of different institutions participated in the data collection and analysis for the publication.

The data shared in the report represents reported experiences and perceptions of discrimination, hate speech and hate crime. For the first time, the report contains a chapter on structural discrimination.

Key findings include the following:

  • Discrimination is still a significant problem in the labour market in Finland as well as in other parts of life.

  • Attitudes towards labour migration have become slightly more positive, and the gap between the labour market position of immigrants and the majority population is narrowing.

  • People of African origin face the most discrimination in Finland compared with other minority groups, and discrimination against this group is on average more common in Finland than in other EU countries.

  • Discrimination in recruitment continues to be a considerable challenge, but during the review period it received increased attention and solutions have been presented.

  • The chapter on structural discrimination includes in particular reference to the concept of intersectional discrimination.
