About 2013 Data

The Macedonian Helsinki Committee for Human Rights and the OSCE Mission to Skopje set up the "Supporting National Stakeholders in Tackling Hate Crimes and Hate Speech" project. This project's overall goal is to increase understanding and strengthen the capacity of institutional and civil society stakeholders to effectively deal with hate crime and hate speech in accordance with domestic legislation, OSCE commitments and international standards.
The OSCE Mission in Skopje designed and implemented the “Supporting national stakeholders in tackling hate crimes and hate speech” project, which supported the development by the Helsinki Committee of hate crime monitoring activities in the country. Project activities included establishing a website that provides information about hate crime and allows for direct reporting by victims, delivering training for judges and prosecutors on hate crime and, in partnership with ODIHR, delivering training for civil society.
The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has reported to ODIHR that it does not collect hate crime data.
