Preambula

Narodi Europe, uspostavljajući meñu sobom sve tješnji savez, odlučni su dijeliti miroljubivu budućnost utemeljenu na zajedničkim vrijednostima.
Svjesna svojeg duhovnog i moralnog nasljeña, Unija se temelji na nedjeljivim, univerzalnim vrijednostima ljudskog dostojanstva, slobode, jednakosti i solidarnosti; Unija se temelji na načelima demokracije i vladavine prava. Ona pojedinca postavlja u središte svog djelovanja uspostavom statusa grañana Unije i stvaranjem područja slobode, sigurnosti i pravde.
Unija pridonosi očuvanju i razvoju tih zajedničkih vrijednosti uz poštovanje raznolikosti kultura i tradicija naroda Europe, nacionalnih identiteta država članica i organizacije njihovih tijela vlasti na nacionalnoj, regionalnoj i lokalnoj razini; ona nastoji promicati uravnoteženi i održivi razvoj i osigurava slobodno kretanje osoba, usluga, roba i kapitala te slobodu poslovnog nastana.
U tu svrhu nužno je ojačati zaštitu temeljnih prava u svjetlu promjena u društvu, društvenog napretka te znanstvenog i tehnološkog razvoja, tako da budu vidljivija u Povelji.
Ova Povelja potvrñuje, uz dužno poštovanje nadležnosti i zadataka Unije te načela supsidijarnosti, prava koja proistječu osobito iz ustavnih tradicija i meñunarodnih obveza zajedničkih državama članicama, iz Europske konvencije za zaštitu ljudskih prava i temeljnih sloboda, iz Socijalne povelje koju su usvojile Unija i Vijeće Europe te iz prakse Suda Europske unije i Europskoga suda za ljudska prava. U tom kontekstu Povelju će tumačiti sudovi Unije i država članica, uzimajući u obzir objašnjenja pripremljena pod vodstvom predsjedništva Konvencije koje je sastavilo Povelju i ažurirana pod odgovornošću predsjedništva Europske konvencije.
Uživanje ovih prava podrazumijeva odgovornosti i dužnosti prema drugim osobama, ljudskoj zajednici i budućim naraštajima.
Unija stoga priznaje prava, slobode i načela koja slijede.

    The report on "Policing Racist Crime and Violence" is based on information collected by the Agency's National Focal Points. The report examines police recording practices, responses to victims of racist crimes, training provided to the police and their engagement with civil society. The emerging data reveals that only two Member States systematically encourage reporting of racist incidents. International police coordination and cooperation with NGOs could be enhanced, while police training is not specific enough to equip officers to tackle racist crime effectively.
