In response to the Council conclusions on combating hate crime in the European Union, which invited EU Member States to take appropriate measures for increasing the reporting of hate crimes by victims, FRA established the Working Party on Improving Reporting and Recording of Hate Crime in the EU. The Working Party brings together all 28 EU Member States as well as the European Commission, the Council of Europe’s Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and FRA.
This compendium is the key output of the Working Party. The aim of the compendium is to help policymakers and practitioners such as law enforcement officers understand what is being done elsewhere in the EU to combat hate crime, and which elements could be adapted for use in their own national contexts.
