2015 Hate Crime Data: Call for Civil Society Submissions

Warsaw, Poland | 12 February 2016

We are now preparing our annual hate crime reporting and encourage civil society to submit information

Every year on 16 November, International Tolerance Day, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) releases its hate crime reporting data.

Our reporting provides an overview of hate crimes and incidents, and of responses by governments and civil society in the 57 OSCE participating States. Information provided by civil society is essential to our reporting, as it complements official data submitted by participating States.

If you or your organization or group are considering submitting information for ODIHR’s hate crime reporting, please follow the guidance in the factsheet below when preparing your submission:

Information in English | Информация на русском языке | Information en français | Informationen auf Deutsch | Informazioni in italiano | Información en español

Informații în română | Informacje w języku polskim | Türkçe Bilgi | Informacija na srpskom / hrvatskom / bosanskom / crnogorskom jeziku

Please note that each incident is analysed on a case-by-case basis. We often co-operate with those making submissions to confirm information on incidents and developments before it is posted. Once we receive civil society contributions, we analyse the incidents according to the OSCE’s definition of hate crime. You can find more information about this in our methodology.
