Key findings

The information ODIHR gathers is provided by governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and international organizations. The data demonstrate clearly that hate crimes remained a pervasive and important challenge in 2013.
Thirty-six participating States submitted information to ODIHR for 2013. Information from 109 NGOs covers incidents for 45 countries.
Data are based on information was received from OSCE field operations, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)

Desk Research
ODIHR’s annual hate crime reporting cycle comprises several stages. First, the Office issues a call for submissions to OSCE participating States, civil society organizations and its partner intergovernmental organizations. Second, ODIHR analyses reported data and information, and assesses whether it can be included in the report. Third, the Office releases data for consultation with participating States and other contributors. Lastly, ODIHR reviews suggested amendments to the report, updates to include late submissions, and prepares the information for final presentation.
