Fokusbericht Antiasiatischer Rassismus in Zeiten der Pandemie

This report presents empirical fndings from the mixedmethods study „Social cohesion in times of crisis. The corona pandemic and anti-Asian racism in Germany“ and discusses them in the context of the historical background such as German colonialism and the current academic and public perception of anti-Asian racism. The results are based on a quantitative survey with 703 participants and a qualitative diary study with 82 participants from Asian, Asian-diasporic and Asian German communities in autumn/ winter 2020. The report focuses on the extent, forms, places, consequences and handling of anti-Asian racism during the pandemic from the perspective of people perceived as „Asian“ in Germany. Another key topic is the intersection of anti-Asian racism with the structural category of gender. Furthermore, the results of a quantitative survey (three waves) aimed at the general German population are summarised. The question was which socio-psychological factors can promote anti-Asian racism.
