On 14 and 15 June, FRA will take part in a meeting of the EU High Level Group on combatting hate speech and hate crime.

FRA will report on the activities of the FRA-led working group on hate crime reporting, recording and data collection. This includes introducing the group’s newly adopted terms of reference till 2024.

FRA will also outline the upcoming key guiding principles on cooperation between civil society organisations and law enforcement. These were developed under FRA’s leadership and will be launched at the meeting.

The High Level Group serves as a platform to support EU and national efforts to prevent and combat hate crime and hate speech. It brings together experts and politicians from Member States, civil society and community-based organisations, EU agencies, particularly FRA, as well as international organisations including the UN, OSCE and Council of Europe.
