The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) publishes its hate crime report on 16 November each year. The report represents the largest dataset on hate crime in the world, and provides an overview of hate crimes reported by states alongside hate incidents reported by civil society, international organizations and the Holy See across the OSCE's 57 participating States.
Reporting by civil society is essential: it highlights gaps in official reporting and is used by states and international organizations to improve policies to address hate crime and support the victims.
Please submit your data and information to ODIHR by 30 April 2024 by emailing: tndinfo[a]odihr.pl
You can submit your data and incidents using ODIHR’s Reporting Template.
You are also invited to submit incidents in your preferred format (e.g., hate monitoring reports, data tables, reporting forms), so long as the submission includes sufficient information about each incident.
What information should be included when submitting incidents?
ODIHR processes both statistical data and detailed descriptions of hate incidents reported by civil society.
We ask civil society groups to provide as much information as possible about each incident, including the location, the date, and any indications that the incident was motivated by bias. To learn more about the type of information to include, please read the guidance provided in our reporting template and factsheets below. This will help to ensure that your incidents are included when ODIHR publishes its 2023 Hate Crime Report on 16 November 2024.
Data and information sent to ODIHR are reviewed for accuracy and to ensure that they conform to the OSCE's concept of hate crime (a criminal offence motivated by bias). As such, incidents of discrimination and hate speech are excluded from our reporting. To improve our data analysis, ODIHR publishes all attacks on property as statistical data presented in charts on each country page.
Prior to publication, all civil society contributors will receive an email inviting them to review the information they submitted. The consultation period will take place in September and October 2024.
