ODIHR'S KEY OBSERVATIONS
ODIHR recognizes Denmark's efforts in conducting a victimization survey addressing hate crimes and, in particular, the submitted information regarding police records. However, based on the available information, it observes that Denmark has not reported data on hate crimes recorded by the prosecution and judiciary to ODIHR. In addition, ODIHR observes that Denmark would benefit from ensuring that hate crimes are addressed in a comprehensive manner, including by introducing a coordination mechanism.
ODIHR recalls that in the Ministerial Council Decision 9/09, participating States have committed to collecting reliable data and statistics in sufficient detail on hate crimes and to reporting such crimes periodically to ODIHR. Furthermore, in the Ministerial Council Decisions 9/09 and 13/06, participating States have also committed to ensuring a comprehensive approach to hate crimes. To that end, the authorities and civil society need to collaborate and coordinate. ODIHR stands ready to support Denmark in meeting its relevant commitments through the provision of comprehensive resources and assistance in the area of hate crime recording and data collection, as well as further its comprehensive resources and tailored assistance in the area of developing co-operation mechanisms to address hate crimes.
