About 2011 Data
Figures include incitement to hatred offences.
The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) recommended that Ireland create systems to encourage reporting of hate crimes; ensure racist motivation is consistently taken into account in sentencing for bias crimes; and deliver training for judiciary on racist crimes.
The UN Human Rights Council encouraged Ireland to develop a training programme for the judiciary to ensure judges take into account racist motivation in sentencing; to establish a system to encourage reporting of racist crimes; and to investigate the reports of knife stabbings of people of African descent, ensuring the perpetrators are prosecuted and appropriately punished.
