An updated compendium of good practice, hosted by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), pools resources of what exists for others to draw on in their own work.
The compendium contains almost 50 practices from around the EU. It focuses on practices which:
The compendium describes each practice step-by-step. It outlines the main outputs. It also identifies success factors for others to adapt for their own use.

The FRA-led working group on hate crime recording, data collection and encouraging reporting compiled the practices.
The working group is part of the EU’s High-Level Group against racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance.
