    Der Zugang zur Justiz ist ein bedeutendes Element der Rechtsstaatlichkeit. Einzelne erhalten so die
    Möglichkeit, sich gegen eine Verletzung ihrer Rechte zu schützen, im Falle unerlaubter Handlungen
    Rechtsbehelfe geltend zu machen, die Exekutive zur Verantwortung zu ziehen und sich selbst in
    Strafsachen zu verteidigen. Dieses Handbuch fasst die zentralen Grundsätze des europäischen
    Rechts im Bereich des Zugangs zur Justiz zusammen.

The report on "Policing Racist Crime and Violence" is based on information collected by the Agency's National Focal Points. The report examines police recording practices, responses to victims of racist crimes, training provided to the police and their engagement with civil society. The emerging data reveals that only two Member States systematically encourage reporting of racist incidents. International police coordination and cooperation with NGOs could be enhanced, while police training is not specific enough to equip officers to tackle racist crime effectively.
