Across the European Union, people face hatred because of their skin colour, ethnicity, religion, gender or sexuality.
In response, the EU and its Member States have introduced laws against hate crime and support services
for victims. But these will only fulfil their potential if victims report hate-motivated harassment and violence
to the police, and if police officers record such incidents as hate crimes. This report provides rich and detailed
information on hate crime recording and data collection systems across the EU, including any systemic cooperation
with civil society.
