From 1-2 October, representatives of Jewish, Muslim, LGBT and racism organisations will meet at the FRA to discuss their experiences on hate crime, and to exchange good practices on how to tackle the issue.
As a basis for discussion, FRA experts will present the results from relevant FRA surveys.
In light of a lack of comparable data on the respect, protection and fulfilment of the fundamental rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) launched in 2012 its European Union (EU) online survey of LGBT persons’ experiences of discrimination, violence and harassment.
This brief provides a short compilation of FRA findings on the issue of combating hate crime in the EU.
Data in focus
This EU-MIDIS Data in focus report 6 presents data on respondents’ experiences of victimisation across five crime types: theft of or from a vehicle; burglary or attempted burglary; theft of personal property not involving force or threat (personal theft); assault or threat; and serious harassment. The European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey (EU-MIDIS) is the first EU-wide survey to ask 23,500 individuals with an ethnic and minority background about their experiences of discrimination and criminal victimisation in everyday life.
Discrimination and intolerance persist in the European Union (EU) despite the best efforts of Member States to root them out, FRA research shows. Verbal abuse, physical attacks and murders motivated by prejudice target EU society in all its diversity, from visible minorities to those with disabilities. This FRA report is designed to help the EU and its Member States to tackle these fundamental rights violations both by making them more visible and bringing perpetrators to account.

The FRA has conducted the first ever online EU-wide survey to establish an accurate picture of the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people (18 years or older) and their experiences with regard to fundamental rights.
18/05/2008 to 05/11/2008
In response to a widespread lack of data on the experiences of immigrants and ethnic minorities in the European Union, in 2008 the FRA carried out its first large-scale survey covering all the 27 EU Member States.
