Choosing to act: Bystander action to prevent race-based discrimination

Date: 13.06.13

Category: Publications: Reducing race-based discrimination

The VicHealth bystander research on race-based discrimination is the first of its kind in Australia. The project has included an evidence review to identify research gaps in the field, followed by a state-wide survey to examine readiness for bystander action in the Victorian community.

The findings provide a sound evidence base to develop further programs that encourage pro-social bystander action to address the determinants of race-based discrimination. The findings also point to future directions in research related to bystanders and health promotion.
