Türkiye regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Türkiye implemented ODIHR's Training against Hate Crime for Law Enforcement (TAHCLE) programme following a memorandum of understanding signed in 2016. The government currently implements a Human Rights Action Plan launched in 2021, which includes objectives dedicated to addressing hate crime in the country, including providing support to victims.

About 2017 Data
Discrepancy between the numbers registered by the police and by prosecutors is due to the fact that most crimes are registered by the prosecutors, rather than the police. Prosecution and sentencing data only include crimes of incitement to hatred and discrimination.
Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR observes that Turkey’s law enforcement agencies have not recorded the bias motivations of hate crimes.
