OSCE/ODIHR Publishes Hate Crime Data

ODIHR’s hate crime data for 2014 is now available. Forty-three participating States submitted information, along with 122 civil society groups covering incidents in 46 countries.

Marking the International Day for Tolerance, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) released its data for 2014 on 16 November 2015.

Forty-three OSCE participating States submitted information to ODIHR. Of these, 17 provided detailed police statistics according to ODIHR’s bias motivations.

ODIHR also received information from 122 civil society groups about incidents in 46 countries.This information is supplemented by data submitted by seven OSCE field operations, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

While the general level of reporting to ODIHR remains comparable to previous years, limited data on some bias motivations continue to indicate under-reporting and gaps in recording.
