FRA Opinion on the Framework Decision on Racism and Xenophobia – with special attention to the rights of victims of crime

The Opinion assesses the impact of the Framework Decision on the rights of the victims of crimes motivated by hatred and prejudice, including racism and xenophobia.

Building on the evidence collected and analysed by FRA, including its large scale surveys, as well as its thematic and annual reports, the Opinion illustrates how hate crime can vary from everyday acts committed by individuals on the street or over the Internet, to large-scale crimes carried out by extremist groups or totalitarian regimes.
