Experts on methodologies for recording and collecting hate crime data meet

Experts gathered at the Agency on 26 April to discuss a draft paper on tackling hate crime.

The draft paper is an overview of practices from across EU Member States and sets out core common elements for recording and collecting data on hate crime. The discussions will help the Agency finalise the paper before submitting it to the EU High Level Group on combating racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance which next meets from 31 May to 1 June.

The experts are part of Member State delegations of the High Level Group’s subgroup on methodologies for recording and collecting hate crime data that FRA coordinates.
