Austria regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. In 2019, Austria began improving its hate crime recording mechanisms based on a series of study visits, research and consultations, including with civil society. Implemented since 2020, the new hate crime recording system represents a good practice in the region. The Austrian Ministry of Interior is also a member of the civil society network "Hate Crime Kontern", which strengthens hate crime co-ordination and victim support, and works co-operates directly with civil society members. Hate crime statistics collected by the Ministry are published online each year.
