Tackling underreporting of LGBTI hate crime and hate speech

The Agency will present an overview of its activities on hate crime and hate speech reporting during ILGA-Europe’s seminar in Brussels from 28 to 29 September on LGBTI hate crime and hate speech.

FRA will also draw on the work being carried out by the subgroup on methodologies for recording and collecting data on hate crime, which it coordinates. The seminar will discuss the coordination of reporting mechanisms for LGBTI-phobic hate crime and hate speech, and improving cooperation between civil society and authorities. It takes place in conjunction with the UNI-FORM conference, which brings together NGOs and security forces to tackle hate crime and online hate speech against LGBT people.
