Greece regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. In June 2018, an "Agreement on inter-agency co-operation on addressing racist crimes" was concluded by relevant state authorities and a network of civil society organizations (CSOs), and implemented as part of ODIHR's project "Building a Comprehensive Criminal Justice Response to Hate Crimes". By strengthening co-ordination among relevant state agencies and CSOs, the agreement has led to improved hate crime recording and data collection.

The UN Human Rights Council encouraged Greece to ensure racially motivated crimes are effectively prosecuted and punished.
UNHCR in Greece, together with the National Commission for Human Rights, set up a Network for Recording Incidents of Racist Violence. Eighteen NGOs and other bodies, including the main human rights and refugee rights organizations, participated in the network. Recognizing the need to use a common and reliable recording tool, the network drafted and adopted a “Racist Incident Record Form”. In October, the network launched a pilot programme aimed at systematically recording racially motivated acts of violence.
