Registered author(s):


    The Relationships (Relations avec les autres) section of Life Story (Histoire de vie) survey is centred on a question which uses the terms of the anti-discrimination legislative measure, without explicitly mentioning the term discrimination. One third of these people gave at least one reason for which they felt they had been subjected to negative treatment, with this proportion being significantly higher amongst young people. Mocking was the most commonly reported negative treatment, with unfair treatment, exclusion and rights violations being less reported. 39% of those people who reported experiencing at least one negative behaviour considered that it had had material, professional, relational and psychological consequences, sometimes serious, on their life, but many also stated that they had got additional energy from this negative treatment. Many of intolerant behaviour, which were often quite significant but did not have serious consequences, took place during childhood or adolescence, generally in the school environment.
