The 2010 edition of Hate Crimes in the OSCE Region – Incidents and Responses, is the latest in a line of annual reports prepared by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) as part of the OSCE’s efforts to combat hate crime.
The report shows that hate crime remains a significant problem across the OSCE region, undermining personal, neighbourhood and state security, and eroding confidence across and among communities. People were killed, injured or otherwise harmed when they were targeted in 2010 for no other reason than being perceived as belonging to a specific ethnic, “racial”, religious or other group. Combating hate crime must, therefore, remain a priority.
