About 2014 Data
The figure presented here includes 11 cases of hate crimes motivated by "fear of the poor" that are not included in the breakdown by bias motivation below, as these do not fall under the OSCE definition of hate crimes.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported that the Council for Victims of Hate Crimes and Discrimination (COVIDOD) was established at the national level. It is a network of 20 civil society groups advocating for a law that guarantees legal and humanitarian assistance and protection for victims of hate crime.
ODIHR observes that Spain has not reported to ODIHR the numbers of prosecuted hate crime cases or information on sentenced hate crime cases.
