ODIHR Publishes 2015 Hate Crime Data

16 November 2016

ODIHR has published its hate crime data for 2015. Forty-one participating States submitted information, along with 113 civil society groups covering incidents in 41 countries. Find out more here.

Marking the International Day for Tolerance, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) released its data for 2015 on 16 November 2016.

Forty-one OSCE participating States submitted information to ODIHR. Of these, 17 provided detailed police statistics according to ODIHR's bias motivations.

We also received information from 113 civil society groups about incidents in 41 countries. This information is supplemented by data submitted by OSCE field operations, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

While the general level of reporting to ODIHR remains comparable to previous years, limited data on some bias motivations continue to indicate under-reporting and gaps in recording.
