About 2019 Data
The number of hate crimes reported by police includes one case of hate speech, which was reported by the prosecution. This incident is not included here as hate speech falls outside of the OSCE's definition of a hate crime.
ODIHR observes that Iceland has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech or discrimination.
