Developments

Racism and xenophobia
  • In its "Concluding observations on the combined eighth to eleventh periodic reports of Slovenia", the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) recommended that the Criminal Code be amended to recognize racist motives as an aggravating circumstance for criminal offences. CERD also underscored the importance of effectively investigating and prosecuting hate crime perpetrators and providing training to police, prosecutors and judges on hate crimes.
