Raising awareness about hate crime in Finland

On 3 April, the Finnish Ministry of Justice, the agency and OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights will host a hate crime awareness raising seminar in Helsinki.

About 60 police officers, prosecutors and other relevant actors working on hate crime and with hate crime victims are expected to participate in this interactive seminar.

Besides awareness raising, the seminar also aims at increasing awareness about the role international actors can play with respect to national policy making. In addition, it will allow Finnish authorities to engage with FRA and OSCE/ODIHR.
