Online seminar focuses on disability hate crime

The Agency will highlight the particular difficulties faced by people with disabilities who become victims of hate crime during an online seminar organised by the European Police College (CEPOL).

The webinar, which takes place on 19 September, aims at raising awareness of the rights of people with disabilities, and how they can best be protected by law enforcement. The Agency’s presentation will draw on the findings of its focus paper on disability hate crime, which examines the different legal frameworks in place in the EU Member States to protect people with disabilities who become victims of hate crime.
