Since UCR is a Dutch university, we also made a list of things you can listen, watch, and read about racism in the Netherlands. This includes documentaries, podcasts, songs, books, and Youtube videos. Unfortunately, there are no subtitles so it is only accessible if you can read or understand Dutch.
