ILPA is committed to tackling institutionalised racism and oppression within the immigration sector.

ILPA explores Racism in the Immigration Sector Survey

In this survey we’re asking ILPA members to provide feedback on the racism they may have experienced within the immigration sector and the racism that may have been experienced by their clients. You can complete the survey here

Racism is understood here to mean any form of discrimination be it visible or otherwise directed towards a person on account of their skin colour, perceived race, ethnicity, religion or nationality. It can be covert and non-tangible but importantly is perceived by the person to which it is being directed. While filling out this survey we encourage you to think about not only overt instances of racism, but any scenarios where you have felt disempowered or marginalised through covert microagressions, if you feel comfortable to do so. 

We recognise that race and racism are incredibly nuanced and therefore a survey will not account for the myriad of ways in which everyone may experience it. We have tried to include comment boxes to allow space for you to further develop your answers if needed. No question is compulsory. 

All submissions are entirely anonymous and when completing the survey we do not require you to disclose any sensitive or identifiable information. 

This survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to provide us feedback on your experiences.
