The different project activities have different target groups. The main target group of the Ministry of the Interior’s project activities is the police; and the target groups of the Ministry of Justice’s project activities are those at risk of hate victimisation and the organisations that work with them, political parties and local politicians.
National funding (government budget); co-funded by the EU’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme 2014-2020.
The project includes four activities:
Three of the project partners are civil society organisations and three are public authorities. The partners are involved in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the project. In particular, the organisations have been involved in the piloting of the OSCE reporting platform. In addition, organisations for people with disabilities provided ideas and comments during the production of material for people with disabilities. Training sessions for people with disabilities are organised in cooperation with civil society organisations. Training sessions for people belonging to sexual and gender minorities have been planned together with the organisation Seta – LGBTI Rights in Finland; the sessions will be carried out in cooperation with Seta – LGBTI Rights in Finland and its member organisations nationwide.
The project is evaluated internally on the basis of indicators (both qualitative and quantitative) agreed on jointly by the project partners. In addition, an external evaluation of the project will be commissioned, and is due to start in 2021. A final progress report will be submitted to the European Commission in late 2021, after the end of the project.
