OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights
Tolerance and non-discrimination
Racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance continue to threaten security in the increasingly diverse societies across the OSCE region. ODIHR has developed a collection of resources and programmes to raise awareness about discrimination, hate crimes, anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance, including against Muslims, Christians and members of other religions. Through advising on policy and the training of law enforcement personnel and educators, the Office works to build the capacity of governments in preventing and responding to this problem. ODIHR also works to increase the ability of civil society to monitor and report on hate crimes and incidents.
