Hate crime subgroup study visit to Finland

The agency is facilitating a country visit of the hate crime subgroup to Helsinki on 4 April.

This is the second country visit of the subgroup, following the successful example from Spain in June 2018.

The visit aims at providing an in-depth understanding of how hate crime is being addressed in Finland. There will be a particular focus on hate crime recording, data collection and collaboration of authorities with victims support services.

Representatives from 10 EU Member States will take part in the visit.
