The first report entitled Making hate crime visible in the European Union: acknowledging victims’ rights outlines a fundamental rights approach to hate crime and offers a comparative analysis of official data collection mechanisms pertaining to hate crime in the 27 EU Member States. The second report, EU-MIDIS Data in Focus 6 on Minorities as Victims of Crime, presents data on respondents’ experiences of victimisation.
The reports will be launched on 27/11 at a conference on hate speech in Budapest, co-organised by the Council of Europe and the Norway Grants.
The conference will be preceded by a training course on hate speech for influential young bloggers, some of whom will take part in the main event. The forthcoming Council of Europe youth campaign on tackling hate speech will also be presented at the conference, as will two new publications from the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency on hate crime and victimisation of minorities.
On 28/11, they will be presented at a police conference in Mainz/Germany, and on 29/11 at the European Parliament.
