About 2021 Data
The numbers reported here refer to the crime of discrimination according to Section 283 of the Criminal Code of Liechtenstein. The numbers may therefore include cases that fall outside of the OSCE's definition of hate crime.
Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR recognizes Liechtenstein's efforts to report hate crime to ODIHR. However, based on the available information, it observes that Liechtenstein's law enforcement agencies do not record the bias motivations of hate crimes. In addition, ODIHR observes that Liechtenstein 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 promptly investigating hate crimes and ensuring that the motives of those convicted of such crimes are acknowledged. To that end, law enforcement must first record the bias motivation of hate crimes. Participating States 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 Liechtenstein in meeting its relevant commitments through the provision of comprehensive resources and tailored assistance in the area of hate crime recording and data collection, as well as through further resources and tailored capacity-building assistance for police, prosecution, and judiciary.
