Albania reports hate crime data to ODIHR. In co-operation with the OSCE Presence in Albania, Albania has trained law enforcement officers on hate crimes. Albania has made efforts to improve systems for hate crime data recording and allow the bias motivation to be identified in recorded cases through ODIHR's Expert workshop on improving hate crime recording and data collection, organized in 2017.

Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR recognizes Albania's efforts to build the capacities of law enforcement agencies in responding to hate crimes. However, based on available information, ODIHR observes that, currently, Albania does not collect data and statistics on hate crimes. In addition, ODIHR observes that Albania would benefit from raising awareness among and building the capacity of criminal justice officials to address hate crime.
ODIHR recalls that in Ministerial Council Decision 9/09, OSCE participating States committed to collecting reliable data and statistics on hate crimes. Participating States have also committed to introducing or further developing professional training and capacity-building activities for law enforcement, prosecution, and judicial officials dealing with hate crimes. ODIHR stands ready to support Albania in meeting the relevant commitments through the provision of comprehensive resources and tailored assistance in the area of hate crime recording and data collection, as well as by providing further resources and tailored capacity-building assistance for police, prosecution, and judiciary.
