National frameworks to address hate crime in Azerbaijan

This page provides information on the national frameworks to address hate crime in Azerbaijan. The information provided here should be viewed alongside data presented on Azerbaijan's hate crime report page.


Hate crime recording and data collection

Hate crime data are collected by the Ministry of Interior. ODIHR does not have any further information about the methodology and procedures for recording and collecting data on hate crime in Azerbaijan.


Hate crime victim support

There is no specific hate crime victim support structure in Azerbaijan. Hate crime victims have the same rights to protection and support as offered to victims of other crimes. Victims of certain categories of crime, including trafficking, domestic violence and terrorism, can make use of special protection and support mechanisms and resources (such as legal aid, hotlines and shelters), provided either by the state or civil society organizations. Victims of all crimes, including hate crimes, are entitled to compensation.
