This report provides information and evidence of racist crimes across Europe and tells the stories of victims of racist crime. In relation to Greece the Shadow Report highlighted inter alia that racist crimes are perpetrated by the police, racist crimes have sharply increased in Greece partly because of the change in the population as well as the hostile environment created by far-right parties and asylum seekers, migrants, refugees and students are the groups cited as most reluctant to report crimes for fear of deportation or unfair treatment because of their migration status.
Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)
This report is based on a collaborative research approach carried out across Europe. ENAR contracted civil society organisations and independent consultants in 26 countries to carry out research at a national level and respond to a questionnaire developed by the ENAR secretariat. The research at a national and EU level was carried out from June 2014 to March 2015.
The national research involved desk-based research, interviews and meetings. The data collected were then submitted to the ENAR secretariat via an online questionnaire portal, which was then reviewed by ENAR staff.
