Organization Report 

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) continued to examine cases that involved the obligation of states to take reasonable steps to investigate bias motivation where there is an indication that it has played a role in the commission of violent crime. In several cases in  2010, the Court declined to rule that states had failed to properly investigate possible bias motivation, noting that in these cases either the applicant had not raised the issue properly before domestic courts or before the ECHR, or that there was insufficient indication that racial bias motivated the violations.
